Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station, Colorado Springs

Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station is located on Cheyenne Mountain on the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The Cheyenne Mountain Complex, an underground facility on Cheyenne Mountain AFS, was first built for the North American Aerospace Defense Command Combat Operations Center, though NORAD moved day-to-day operations to its headquarters on Peterson AFB in 2006. The location now supports U.S. Strategic Command's Missile Warning Center, other strategic warning and survivable capabilities, and provides a ready alternative operating location for NORAD's command center.
