Complexes 3 & 4
Located to the southeast of Space Launch Complex (SLC) 36, these pads were originally constructed to support the BOMARC interceptor program. These pads also supported BUMPER, JASON, REDSTONE, X-17, and POLARIS ballistic missile operations. During the 60's, some of the support facilities were converted into a medical support area for Project MERCURY. Along with Complexes 1 & 2, both sites supported the tethered aerostat programs in the 80's. These sites are currently inactive.
