C3I
Communications, Command, Control and Intelligence
United States Nuclear Forces

"Communications are the nervous system of the entire SAC organization, and their protection is therefore, of the greatest importance. I like to say that without communications, all I control is my desk, and that is not a very lethal weapon."
Gen. T.S. Power, CINCSAC, May 1959
