Actually the unsuccessful polar bomber, the M-4 (Bison-A) were reused as tanker.

Its production run was:
1954 - 2
1955 - 9
1956 - 20

So not more than 31 tanker were available from '62.

In my assessment, half of the cruise missile carriers could arrive from the sea, the other ~30 could try to clear the way from the pole through Canada, for the 128 bombers trailing the attack.


Yes, your assessment on the Soviet airborne refueling capabilities and numbers certainly looks very realistic to me and I fully agree with it.

Yeap, the Tu-95 Bear is definitely one of the world's military aircraft classics of all times!

Personally I'm not a big fan of Soviet/Russian military aircraft save for a few exceptions and the Tu-95 Bear is definitely one of those exceptions!

IBM On Guard! The Semi-Automatic Ground Environment - 1956 Educational Film - S88TV1

IBM Corporation, Military Products Division, detail Innovations in computer technology for use as weapons in the Cold War.

The Semi-Automatic Ground Environment (SAGE) was an operator environment for the automated air defense (AD) of North America and by extension, the name of the network of computer systems providing the ground environment for the larger air defense system with buildings, radars, and defense aircraft. SAGE Direction Centers (DC) in large "cube" buildings provided radar netting for Air Defense Sectors that included remote radar stations manned by SAGE radar squadrons of the USAF which operated several radar types for searching/detecting, height finding and for Bomarc missiles, automatic tracking. Each SAGE DC provided data to a Combat Center for "supervision of the several sectors within the division" ("each combat center [had] the capability to coordinate defense for the whole nation").

SAGE used core memory as in the Whirlwind I, Cathode ray tube based real-time user interface as in the British CDS, telephone modem communications developed by the AFCRC, and over 100 long range radar stations as with the preceding Permanent System radar stations.

SAGE SYSTEM TRAINING PROGRAM COLD WAR EARLY WARNING SYSTEM 78864]

This film shows the Semi-Automatic Ground Environment or SAGE, a system of large computers and associated networking equipment that coordinated data from many radar sites and processed it to produce a single unified image of the airspace over a wide area. SAGE directed and controlled the NORAD response to a Soviet air attack, operating in this role from the late 1950s into the 1980s.

The processing power behind SAGE was supplied by the largest computer ever built, the AN/FSQ-7. Each SAGE Direction Center (DC) housed an FSQ-7 which occupied an entire floor, approximately 22,000 square feet, of the massive concrete blockhouse, not including supporting equipment. The upper two floors contained offices, operator stations, and a single two-story radar display visible to most of the DC's personnel. Information was fed to the DC's from a network of radar stations as well as readiness information from various defence sites. The computers, based on the raw radar data, developed "tracks" for the reported targets, and automatically calculated which defences were within range. Subsets of the data were then sent to the many operator consoles, where the operators used light guns to select targets onscreen for further information, select one of the available defences, and issue commands to attack. These commands would then be automatically sent to the defence site via teleprinter. Connecting the various sites was an enormous network of telephones, modems and teleprinters.

SAGE became operational in the late 1950s and early 1960s at a combined cost of billions of dollars. It was noted that the deployment cost more than the Manhattan Project, which it was, in a way, defending against. SAGE was the backbone of NORAD's air defence system into the 1980s.

The film begins with the headquarters New York air defense sector. At mark 2:50, they control a flight interception for its identification. This air defense system is also designed as a weapon during war to counter mass attacks. It is use to provide training of air force crews which in turns develop their potentials. It enables them to interact swiftly and successfully enables them to interact swiftly and successfully under stress. At mark 4:08, they developed a simulation training system. A magnetic tape is seen at 7:52. Information on the tape is also converted into punch cards. We have SSDP problem tapes prepared to the sage system and is been processed at mark 9:40. At mark 12:00, we have the weapon direction room and their communication network.

At mark 13:20, we have messages been sent through simulations and received automatically by a teletype machine in the manual data room which is then transferred to a punch card and from punch card, the information is been fed into the computer by a manual data supervisor as seen at mark 14:25. The simulator is handled by a weapon director simulator at mark 17:30.
The capabilities of any aircraft weapon system are included in sage sdp exercises at mark 18:00. At mark19:20, we have the identification room and how they relay messages through the system. At mark 20:00, we have the identification room tracking an unknown track. Preliminary scrambling instructions for the interception are punched into the private council at mark 20:55.

We have messages on the lima papa 01 (LP01) been relayed through the system, its location and time to engage. At mark 23:50, we see the end of a complete interception as LP01 returns to base guided home by the interception director. Every details of this interception is been recorded in a tape. At mark 24:15, we have a debriefing to meet the needs of the group. They evaluate each individuals performance, initiations and monitoring. Each individual made a report on his initiation at mark 27:05. The weapon operation group also holds their meeting outside the debriefing room at mark 27:35. It helps the group find solutions to the problems which roll up in the exercise. The director asks them to get their reports in so special actions will be taken to help in their efficiency. At mark 29:23, the subsystem representatives gather to discuss the exercise as it affected the entire defense group. At mark 31:35, we have them discussing on new features that could be added to the training system and so the training program of the SAGE system continues.

Cold War Computing: The SAGE System (In Your Defense)

The SAGE (Semi-Automatic Ground Environment) System, was designed and built in the 1950s to defend against the threat of Soviet bombers attacking the continental United States. The system was much influenced by the design of MIT's Whirlwind II computer system (which was never completed). IBM designed and built the AN/FSQ-7 computer, the heart of the SAGE program, with companies such as Western Electric (who produced In Your Defense), The Mitre Corporation and System Development Corporation were also major contractors on the project.

There were more than twenty SAGE installations located across North America linking hundreds of radar stations, Air Force fighter wings, and missle defense sites in the first large-scale computer communications network. The SAGE network was decentralized and would allow a unit to continue operation even if other sites were disabled. As the Soviet attack threat shifted from long-range bombers to nuclear missles in the 1960's, the SAGE system became less strategic. However, parts of the system continued operation into the early 1980's.

This film explains the national security threats of the 1950's and 60's that SAGE was built to defend against, shows the SAGE computer and network in operation and simulates how SAGE would react to an attack on the United States.

SAGE (Semi-Automatic Ground Environment)

The Semi-Automatic Ground Environment (SAGE) was an automated control system for tracking and intercepting enemy bomber aircraft used by NORAD from the late 1950s into the 1980s. In later versions, the system could automatically direct aircraft to an interception by sending instructions directly to the aircraft's autopilot.

Vigilance and Vacuum Tubes: The Sage System, 1956-1963

Recorded: Tuesday, May 19, 1998
Posted: Aug 27, 2013
Location: The Computer Museum History Center, Building 126, Moffett Field, Mountain View, CA

In 1963, the last of 22 SAGE command centers was completed by contractors IBM, Western Electric, The RAND Corporation, and Burroughs. At a cost of $8 billion (1964 dollars), this vastly complex technological system, an outgrowth of MIT Lincoln Labs' Whirlwind II computer, represented the state of the art in strategic doctrine and computer systems design. Each one of the 22 SAGE command centers used over 49,000 vacuum tubes, weighed 250 tons, and consumed 3,000,000 watts of power.

The SAGE system linked these command centers into a technopolitical "shield" against Soviet strategic bomber attack. From a stark social context of high Cold War tensions emerged impressive technical advances in hardware and software systems design, real-time control, and air traffic monitoring.

Advances such as the light gun, modems, duplex CPUs, multiprocessing, A/D and D/A conversion techniques, as well as networking arose as ancillary technologies of SAGE development. But did SAGE really work as advertised? Should we care? This lecture reflects on these questions, SAGE's context, and its technical spinoffs.

The lecture takes place in front of 400 square feet of actual SAGE hardware, including Weapons Director and Intercept Technician consoles! This equipment is from the last functioning SAGE center in North Bay, Ontario (Canada), decommissioned in 1982. The USAF SAGE Film "In Your Defense" will also be shown. "I like Ike" buttons optional.
