Gerry Anderson's UFO TECHNICAL MANUALS.I.D. - Space Intruder Detector advance warning satellite maintaining scan for UFOs
In the early 1980s, Earth was engaged in a deadly war against hostile extra-terrestrial aliens from a dying world. Unbeknown to the general population, our only line of defense in that war was a secret paramilitary organization with a manned lunar outpost and headquarters hidden beneath a British film studio. This organization maintained a fleet of advanced vehicles and spacecraft in order to combat the alien menace - a secret army of sophisticated hardware on constant patrol on land, in the sky, under the sea and far out in the depths of space.
Now, 30 years on, details of that secret war are finally emerging with the publication of the previously top secret documents of SHADO - the Supreme Headquarters Alien Defense Organization. Within these pages, spectacular computer-generated illustrations and plan views of the many SHADO vehicles reveal the organization's incredible machinery and weaponry, together with verified accounts of the role played by that hardware in the defense of the Earth.
