I lived near NORAD, whilst working for MCI. The tour is amazing. The Space Command Center is equally amazing. Their target tracking systems and info processing capability is equally amazing, what I've seen of it. That capability exists now. Unfortunately, what is equally amazing is the poor state of the civilian systems. Hughes (HAC) should have been awarded that contract, back in 1987, rather than the IBM/Raytheon clan that fsck'd the pooch. Parts of the FAA air traffic control system are older than I am.
