      Jeffrey Richelson's "America's Space Sentinels: DSP Satellites and
      National Security" briefly discusses some of the NUDET packages that
      have flown with DSP.

      Accurate NUDET is essential to extended war fighting. A commander
      needs to know which assets have been destroyed/survived on *both*
      sides in order to plan continuing operations.

      Eventually land based bomb detectors were replaced by space based
      senors,
      first the VELA, then MIDAS then DSP and today GPS satellites perform
      NUDET monitoring. The US has had some form of space based NUDET
      capability
      since 1960. Thus the military not having to rely on it's civilian
      counterparts.
