Nike Maintenance Facilities

Nike missile installations within the former New York Defense Area were serviced by three regional maintenance facilities. At these facilities routine maintenance and repairs to radar systems, electronics, launching equipment and missiles was performed.

Withn the New York area, the earliest facility of this type was at Miller Field on Staten Island. However, in order to accommodate the growing needs of the 19 Nike batteries within this region, a new facility was opened at Camp Kilmer, NJ, during 1958. This was followed by the construction of yet another major maintenance facility located at North Bellmore, Long Island.

Additional information and site images will be available in the future.
