All the information presented in these COLD WAR Radar Kiosk web pages were obtained from world-wide Internet websites, ca 2009. None of the information contained in the captions were obtained from US Government generated resources or references. Since these readily accessible Internet references are available for world-wide public consumption and use, it is believed that none of it that was used impinges upon US national security nor is it sensitive and restricted information. All the radar antennae shown were developed and deployed during the Cold War (1948-1991) by the FSU.
