Several very large satellite dishes. These dishes are owned and operated by Verestar, a global communications company. This being the highest place in the area, was probably a prime site for these dishes.
This was a rare "hardened" Nike site with heavily-constructed, blast-resistant structures at both the IFC and Launcher areas. The battery and radar control vans were located side-by-side within the reinforced structure which was protected by 8-ton doors and a special, pressurized air filtration system. Crew accomodations were provided within this building, as well as in a smaller structure at the launcher area.
