Defense Support Program is a string of satellites providing an early warning of enemy missiles aimed at America's allies. It was tested out during the 1990-1991 Iraqi campaign. It gave Israel and Saudi Arabia a "heads up" to prepare themselves for an attack. They are located in geostationary orbits.The 460th Space Wing, with headquarters at Buckley Air Force Base, Colo., has units that operate DSP satellites and report warning information, via communications links, to the NORAD and USSTRATCOM early warning centers within Cheyenne Mountain, Colorado. These centers immediately forward data to various agencies and areas of operations around the world
