According to reports published in Russia, apparently based on information developed by the Russian Federal Security Service, facilities located at "Masskhad" include production of unguided missiles, test and production site for solid-propellant missile engines.
The NIMA GEOnet Names Server (GNS) is unware of the "Masskhad" placename. By default, we guesstimate that the place in question is the "Mashhad" that is the capital of Khorasan province. Most of the other places named "Mashhad" seem pretty far off the beaten path, and most of the other five dozen places returned from the search on "Mas*ad" have placenames that are almost certainly not variants on "Masskhad."
As of 11 April 2000, Russian 2-meter resolution KVR-1000 imagery coverage was not available via the SPIN-2 service on TerraServer, nor was archived Space Imaging IKONOS 1-meter imagery of this area available on the CARTERRAT Archive.
