The Maryland/DC defense area comprised numerous Nike installations to defend Baltimore and the nation's capital. Sites also were built in the northern parts of Virginia.
Baltimore Area HQ facilities were at Towson, Fort Smallwood, Edgewood Arsenal, and Owings Mills.
HQ facilities on Maryland side of Washington's defenses were located at Fort Meade and Suitland.
Fort Meade also hosted HQ 2nd Region, Army Air Defense Command. The Air-Defense Command Post (ADCP) W-13DC was at Fort Meade for Nike missile command-and-control functions. Site was both an AN/FSG-l Missile-Master and later AN/GSG-5(V) BIRDIE Radar Direction Center. W-13DC was the first Missile-Master DC to become operational. The site was later integrated with USAF Air Defense Command/NORAD Semi Automatic Ground Environment (SAGE) air defense radar network.
