South of Kansas City is the former Richards-Gebaur AFB which from 1955-1970 was home to the 29th Air Division of the Air Defense Command. Based at "Dicky Goober" were F-102 Delta Dart interceptors but also a sector control of the ADC's integrated air defense system called SAGE (Semi-Automatic Ground Environment).

SAGE, built by IBM, was used to collect, organize, and disseminate information on the air defense environment of the continental United States for NORAD and the ADC.

The SAGE blockhouse was a four story windowless building that housed the massive computers of the day that SAGE used.
