Surface To Air Missile
A surface-to-air missile (SAM), or ground-to-air missile (GTAM), is a missile designed to be launched from the ground to destroy aircraft or other missiles. It is one type of antiaircraft system; in modern armed forces, missiles have replaced most other forms of dedicated antiaircraft weapons, with anti-aircraft guns pushed into specialized roles. The first serious attempts at SAM development took place during World War II, although no operational systems were introduced. Further development in the 1940s and 1950s led to the first operational systems being introduced by most major forces during the second half of the 1950s

Military Operations Area
A military operations area (MOA) is "airspace established outside Class A airspace to separate or segregate certain nonhazardous military activities from IFR Traffic and to identify for VFR traffic where these activities are conducted." (14 CFR §1.1, U.S.A.) Similar structures exist under international flight standards. These are designed for routine training or testing maneuvers. Areas near actual combat or other military emergencies are generally designated as restricted airspace. See Temporary Flight Restriction
Temporary Flight Restriction
(TFR). A MOA is a type of special use airspace (SUA), other than restricted airspace or prohibited airspace, where military operations are of a nature that justify limitations on aircraft not participating in those operations

Hot Creek Valley
The Hot Creek Range is a volcanic mountain range in Nye County, in central Nevada in the western United States. From the historic community of Warm Springs, the range runs north-northeast for approximately 43 miles (69 km). To the west are Stone Cabin Valley, Little Fish Lake Valley, and the large Monitor Range. To the east are Hot Creek Valley, Big Sand Springs Valley, and the Lunar Craters Volcanic Field. Further east lies the large Railroad Valley, and the Grant and Quinn Canyon Ranges. Highway 6 passes south of the range at 6293-foot (1918 m) Warm Springs Summit. To the north, the range almost merges with the smaller Antelope and Park Ranges.[1][2] The northern section of the Hot Creek Range has two distinct crests. The eastern crest rises to Morey Peak (10,246 feet, 3123 m), the highest point of the range. Nearby is the historic silver mining district of Morey

Tikaboo Valley
Tikaboo Valley is a valley, located in Lincoln County, Nevada.

Part of the reason for this is the possibility of Climate change

Mercury Valley
Mercury is a closed city in Nye County, Nevada, United States,[3] 5 miles (8.0 km) north of U.S. Route 95 at a point 65 miles (105 km) northwest of Las Vegas. It is situated within the Nevada Test Site and was constructed by the Atomic Energy Commission to house and service the staff of the test site. The specific site was known as Jackass Flats, Nevada[2] and nearby Nevada Test Site 400.[4] Today, the site is governed by the United States Department of Energy. As part of the test site, the town is not accessible to the general public. It was named after the mercury mines which flourished in its general vicinity a century before the town itself was established. The current population is unknown. History[edit] The town started in 1950 at the beginning of operations of the Nevada Test Site as Base Camp Mercury, a military-style encampment built to provide basic facilities for personnel involved

Air Defense Artillery
Anti-aircraft warfare or counter-air defence is defined by NATO as "all measures designed to nullify or reduce the effectiveness of hostile air action."[1] They include ground-and air-based weapon systems, associated sensor systems, command and control arrangements and passive measures (e.g. barrage balloons). It may be used to protect naval, ground, and air forces in any location. However, for most countries the main effort has tended to be 'homeland defence'. NATO refers to airborne air defence as counter-air and naval air defence as anti-aircraft warfare. Missile defence is an extension of air defence as are initiatives to adapt air defence to the task of intercepting any projectile in flight. In some countries, such as Britain and Germany during the Second World War, the Soviet Union, NATO, and the United States, ground-based air defence and air defence aircraft have been under integrated command and control
