'Diving a Larson AFB Titan I Missile Complex'

A DocuMini shot by DCS Films

Coined by George Orwell in his essay “You and the Atomic Bomb,” Cold War was a term that describes hostilities between the USSR and the United States and its western European allies, between 1947 and the official dissolve of the USSR in 1991. During this time, a massive plan was underway; to develop a modus operandi for the Titan I Weapon System. The idea was to build an underground complex, a small city really, for staff to live and work in. In the unfortunate event of a nuclear threat, this subterranean complex would serve as a central zone to launch our missiles in a pre-emptive strike or counter attack.

Join DCS Films and the Maritime Documentation Society as they embark on an underwater expedition in one of the northwest’s many hidden flooded bases, and reflect on our country’s ingenious innovation driven by suspicion and distrust during this frantic era.
