Abstract : This CHECO report updates "IGLOO WHITE (Initial Phase)," which traced the beginnings of IGLOO WHITE (MUSCLE SHOALS) from the September 1966 decision of Secretary of Defense, Robert S. McNamara, to develop the system to its initial operation on 1 December 1967. Covering the period mid-1968 through December 1969, this report notes achievements and problem areas of the IGLOO WHITE system, its technological advancement, and changes in hardware. Testing of the accuracy and effectiveness of the IGLOO WHITE system proved it to be satisfactory in monitoring enemy lines of communications. It was operated effectively as a real time intelligence source for target development and added a new dimension to interdiction operations.
