Range Launch Control Center

This is the range launch control center that apparently utilizes multiple floors in addition to VIP guest observation areas. The VIP area appears to be on the third floor above the range control second floor and the support facilities first floor. There is a smaller side entrance first floor building attached to the main building. The entrance is surrounded by a prefabricated concrete apron parking area on three sides. The first floor seems to have offices and support on the first floor adjoining building. The far right second floor support building may house a kitchen, cafeteria in addition to support area offices. On the far right side of the right side second floor building is an area that may portend the expansion of the main building sometime in the future. There is an off site officer ’s and guard quarters outside the Range Control parameter fence lines. There is only one gravel dirt road giving single access through a single gate to the facility. The officers quarters also like many of the other local quarters in the total infrastructure have their own field gardens and poultry facilities.

More Range Tracking Support

On top of the hill plain above the static test center is apparently a trailer like building with radar, telemetry communications dish some what similar to the USA SCR-584 system on top of a support building for human operator operations.
