Titan Missile Museum Below Ground Pictures
Assorted Electronic equipment. Note the large spring in the middle of the
picture. Everything underground is shock mounted to insure that the equipment continues
to work in case there is a near miss of a nuclear weapon aimed at the base. NOTE:
the base could NOT have survived a direct hit.
Yet more electronic equipment. The "Two Man" sign is because there had to be two (or more)
people at a time in this section to prevent sabotage of the systems.
Assorted cables. Note the excess slack in the cables. Once again, this is in case the
base takes a near miss.
A closeup of one of the giant springs in the base. This particular spring is 3-4 feet tall.
