Not much to see here. The new new hangar and/or scoot and hide looks the same as last year. Just the construction equipment has been removed.

While Google Earth shows some fuel tanks removed, you can see from the photo that they were just replaced.

Front and back gate photos are more or less what everyone else posted. I did spot a small yagi antenna by the back gate FLIR.

The sides of Cedar Pass Road have been cleaned of plant growth. Probably to discourage cattle.

I use a telescope. You need about 2400mm equivalent focal length.

Even the TTR needs a scope. Groom is about 26 miles from Tikaboo. The TTR is about 14 miles from Brainwash.

If you look at the FLIR, it appears to be some variant of the FLIR CommandSpace Argus. The tub shaped container under the camera contains the tracking radar.

I've seen some mention of the CommandSpace Sx in federal requisitions.

Wow, if that's the model it's got some nifty features:
KEY FEATURES
• Radar and visible/thermal camera payloads ranging from 700m to 30km (18.6 miles), with slew-to-cue of cameras to radar tracks
• Optional Payloads cover up to four spectral bands including visible, near-IR (NIR), short-wave IR (SWIR) and mid-wave IR (MWIR) bands
• Installs in hours, not days
• Track over 500 targets at the same time
• Laser Designator, Laser Rangefinder, Laser Pointer, and Illuminator options
• Networks with other Argus solutions, as well as vehicles and command and control nodes
• Provides target bearing and geo-referenced coordinates, identifying the precise location and direction of the target


Perhaps this model?

Physically the guts of the system looks more like the Argus.
