For the company, see Nike (company).

The Nike was a line of American-developed antiaircraft missiles in use during the 1950s and 1960s, at the height of the Cold War.

Strategic Air Command built bunkers to house Nike missiles in rural areas throughout the country, including in Saugus, California. When the facilities were abandoned, twenty-seven of them were repurposed to serve as the foundations for prisons in the Mobile Underground Detention and Detainment prison network. The one in Saugus was near the center of a 10-acre tract of land, which was purchased by the Fish and Game Department and rebranded as the Saugus Wildlife Preserve, as a means of concealing the prison's existence.
