The third and most challenging joint air defense undertaking of the 1950s was the construction of the Distant Early Warning Line (DEW Line), a transcontinental line along the 70th parallel, about 200 miles north of the Arctic Circle.
In 1953, AT&T and the Defense Department asked Rocky to help engineer and install the Distant Early Warning Line, also known as the "DEW Line," along the coast of northern Alaska and Canada.
ON THE DEW LINE Re-fitted, the Labrador headed north again in the summer of 1955 to carry out survey work in preparation for the sea-lift of materials for the construction of the Distant Early Warning Line, a gigantic project that would employ 25,000 men.
