History

This site became a USNUSAF//FAA joint-use site in 1980, furnishing radar track data to the FAA, USAF, and USN. Initial radar equipment included an FPS-93A search radar and an FPS-116 Height finder. The FPS- 116 was removed circa 1988. The FPS-93A was replaced by the ARSR-4 in the late 1990s. The ARSR-4 radar was capable of providing both search and height-finder information and is still in place.
