Isn't Keflavik a major NATO airbase?

Iceland is or at least was a major part of the SOSUS network of underwater sonar listening posts. There was and probably are underwater sensors to detect subs in the ocean. Might have something to do with the shacks. And the antennae are relays or something.

Is this what you were looking for?
It's a little north of the airbase, and is actually tagged in Google Earth as "US radar" or something along those lines.

The Naval Security Group had a HFDF site there that closed in 1994.
Naval Air Station Keflavik is the host comand for the NATO base there.
The station is supposed to close by 30 Sept 2006. But NATO may still keep a presence there since Iceland has no military.
