Military Revives Almost-Abandoned Mountain Base to Protect Against New-Era Threat

The Cold War-Era bunker in Colorado Springs that was designed to protect the U.S. military’s command in the event of a nuclear bomb is getting a new purpose after many of the operations once inside Cheyenne Mountain have been moved over the years.

The Cheyenne Mountain Complex originally housed the control room for the North American Aerospace Defense Command, which later moved to Peterson Air Force Base not far away. But last week, William Gortney, commander of U.S. Northern Command and NORAD, said at a briefing that some military communications equipment was moving into the mountain.

This time, the military is turning toward the Cheyenne Mountain Complex for protection from electromagnetic pulses. EMPs can occur naturally, but the threat of artificial EMP attacks have been a popular discussion point of late.
