Abstract : The United States Air Force proposes to construct two sections of underground tunnel in the Luke Air Force Range in Yuma County, Arizona. The proposed construction project will provide essential cost and construction data to analyze conceptual protective structures for the mobile, land-based Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) System known as MX. The trench will also serve as a test bed for mechanisms designed to punch through the tunnel roof and erect a dummy missile to simulate launch position
