  • Description

    "SAGE", THE ELECTRONIC BRAIN CENTER OF AN AIR DEFENSE SECTOR, IS IN OPERATION IN THE NEW YORK CITY AREA. A "SAGE" UNIT CAN DETECT AND IDENTIFY HUNDREDS OF AIRCRAFT SIMULTANEOUSLY AND ANALYZE THE AIR DEFENSE SITUATION.

    AT THE COMMAND CENTER POST, "SAGE" COMPUTES AND PRESENTS THE AIR SITUATION OF THE ENTIRE DEFENSE AREA, FURTHER, THE MOST EFFECTIVE USE OF WEAPONS IS CALCULATED AND CAN BE CONTROLLED THROUGH "SAGE". BUTTONS PUSHED AT A "SAGE" DIRECTION CENTER CAN GENERATE BATTLE ORDERS TO COMPLEXES OF INTERCEPTOR MISSILES. THE FIRING OF THIS "BOMARC" INTERCEPTOR WAS INITIATED AT A "SAGE" COMMAND POST MORE THAN A THOUSAND MILES AWAY.

    THE TIME SAVED BY "SAGE" IS TIME GAINED BY OUR DEFENSE WEAPONS TO STOP ENEMY BOMBERS OR MISSILES, BEFORE THEY CAN REACH THEIR TARGETS. THE SPEED AND PRECISION OF "SAGE" MAKE IT A VITAL LINK IN THE FOUR-PHASE AIR DEFENSE SYSTEM -- DETECTION, IDENTIFICATION, INTERCEPTION, DESTRUCTION.
