Fact Sheets

The classified information related to SHAD was not completely cataloged or located in one facility. Furthermore, The Deseret Test Center was closed in the 1970s. The search for 40-year-old documents and records kept by different military services in different locations was the initial challenge. The following fact sheets reference tests relating to Project 112 and SHAD.
