NORAD was a defense command center before the Great War.


NORAD is listed as offline in the Gecko power plant computer terminal.[1] Vault 0 served as the base of operations for NORAD.[2] Another NORAD facility is located near Anchorage.[3] A terminal inside of the Switchboard recorded NORAD confirming "birds in the air" and increased the nation's security rating to DEFCON1 on the morning of October 23, 2077.[4]


NORAD is mentioned in Fallout 2, Fallout Tactics, Fallout 3, and Fallout 4.
