START Verification

The Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START) required the United States and the Soviet Union (later Russia) to exchange very specific telemetry data on certain intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) and submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM) tests. The treaty also required both countries to provide missile telemetry processing equipment so that compliance to the treaty could be verified.
