What appears to be pole (presumably used for mounting the vehicle shape being tested) is located on the centerline of the strip at the southeastern end.
A small complex of buildings is located at the northwest end of the strip (where the entrance road is located), while a larger complex of buildings is located at the southeastern end of the strip.
By comparing the layout of this site with radar cross section testing ranges in Southern CA (particularly the Helendale Range), the physical similarities are obvious, leading to the conclusion that the Wewahotee site is most likely some kind of radar cross section test range.
It most likely is part of the facilities of Lockheed Martin Missiles & Fire Control, which employs several thousand people at facilities just a few miles to the northwest.
It is not known if the facility is still actively used.
