Atlas F Missile Silo Base Located in Central Kansas

 

Atlas F sites were built in the late '50's and early '60's, and, after a short operational period, were decommissioned in 1965. These were the first of the "super hardened" missile bases, built to withstand at least 200 pound-per-square-inch blast. These are some of the most hardened structures man has ever built. Construction costs for the structure only ranged from $14-18 million in 1960's dollars; in today's equivalent, that is at least $120 Million dollars!

General Layout & Features

Launch Control Center (LCC)

The LCC is a cylindrical underground chamber with two levels. It is accessed through the entry portal through a custom made vault type door at the surface. There are 2 rebuilt fully functional blast doors between the surface and the living quarters. Each level is 1,250 square feet. This is the area is being developed into a home.

Missile Silo

The missile silo is a huge structure with a 52' inside diameter and is approximately 185' deep. The LCC is connected to the silo by a 40 tunnel which has three intact blast doors between the LCC and the silo. To launch the missile, two overhead 150-ton doors would have been opened hydraulically. Originally, there were several floors built inside the silo. Today, most of the other Atlas F silos have been completely salvaged leaving only the structural concrete walls. One way the silos are now being developed is to rebuild some or all of the floors. Each level would have approximately 2,000 square feet. This missile silo is one of the very few that has much of its metal structure and floors remaining.

The Land

Plot sizes vary greatly due to post-government division. The typical minimum is 5 acres. This site is still deeded with the original 18 acres the government purchased. The entire property is surrounded with a 5 wire 4 point barbed wire fence built to government specifications, good for cattle or horses. There were originally two 40' x' 100' Quonset buildings on this site. The original buildings have been removed. But the concrete pads remain. The above ground residence is on one of these pads. An antenna silo also exists on the site. It measures 8' in diameter and 29' deep.
