TIMELINE

We are preparing for the installation of the LGM-35A SENTINEL missile. This is the modernization of the ICBMs which are currently maintained and operated by the 90th Missile Wing at FE Warren Air Force Base. America is investing $86 billion into this upgrade and the Air Force has chosen Northrop Grumman as the primary contractor to deliver this important project.

The Greater Cheyenne Chamber of Commerce has been proactive throughout this process in regularly communicating with the Air Force and the vendors on local capabilities. This level of investment by our nation will make a large impact on our local economy. To best prepare for the modernization, the Chamber has been active in positioning the community to be successful once Northrop Grumman's deployment of the new design is fully implemented.

Cheyenne, Wyoming's FE Warren Air Force Base is an ideal destination to begin the modernization because of its unequivocal infrastructure: broadband, water, railroad, interstate corridor for I25 & I80, and access to air service. The transportation alone makes bringing materials in and out of the area simpler compared to other locations.
