Maastricht Cannerberg; underground NATO Joint Operations Center (JOC) / 2 ATAF Alternate War HQ and Allied Tactical Operations Center (ATOC) inside of the Cannerberg 1960-1992. Former used tacticalls: Static and Dustbin.
Facility peacetime staff was appx 50 and wartime +300 personnel; it had been equipped with (then) hi-tech state of the art code and crypto equipment to be used in the Air Defense Operation Center, the Tape Relay Center and the Crypto Center. There also used to be important offensive computer systems like Einsatz Fuehrungs System Luftwaffe (EIFEL) and Status Control Alerting and Reporting System (SCARS) to connect and to control all NATO bases throughout Europe.
Electric capacity was supplied by a submarine diesel which still reamains inside the cave as it is to large to be removed!
The facility was deactivated 1992 and closed 1995 because of heavy asbestos contamination risks.
