Cheyenne Mountain AFS Homes for Sale

The Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station, Colorado is located deep in Cheyenne Mountain.  It is owned and operated by Air Force Space Command. The Air Force Station supports US Strategic Command's Missile Warning Center as well as other strategic capabilities.  
It also serves as an alternate Command Center for NORAD and USNORTHCOM and as a training site. An underground site was chosen to replace an above ground facility that was more vulnerable. The location was chosen because it is in the center of the continent, the area had low earthquake activity, as well as the fact that it sits next to higher mountains, which would catch any missiles first.  Construction began in 1961. In 1964 the excavation was completed and the station became operational in 1966.
