Later this part of the site was extra fortified as part of the Long Range Security Program to counter terrorist activity in the 1970's.

Its components: hardened facilities, an Intrusion Detection System (IDS) and a Weapons Access Delay System (WADS), an initiative to delay intruders from removing warheads.
