The Oklahoma City Air Defense Sector (OCADS) is an inactive Air Defense Command's 29th Air Division at Oklahoma City Air Force Station, Oklahoma.

History

Oklahoma City Air Defense Sector was established in 1960[1] as manual sector[2] as part of phaseout of 32nd Air Division on 1 September 1961.[3] This change was short-lived, for the 4752nd Wing was discontinued and replaced once again by the Oklahoma City Air Defense Sector on 25 June 1963[1][3] as a result of the realignment and expansion of the 29th Air Division. Finally, the sector was inactivated[1] and replaced by the 31st Air Division on 1 April 1966.

The sector operated a Manual Air Defense Control Center (ADCC), P-86, later redesignated Manual Combat Center (MCC-11) and later NORAD Sector Combat Center (Manual).
