Looks like it is exactly 1km x .5 km.

The area to the south is used extensively for chemical and biological agent testing. Perhaps this is related to those sites.

Very likely is, or was, a chemical or biological warfare test range. Dugway still does agent testing and dispersal tests. Most likely the agent, whether real or simulated, is released at the south end of the range and monitors are placed at the ends of the points for cloud dispersal monitoring.
