anotheruser4321 - Project 86. At least thats what we used to call it. It IS NOT Coast Guard.
So we know its on USCG land near or on Fort Belvior but it is run by
someone else. It looks brand new but is at the end of an ill maintained dirt road. I could also post the laundry list of sneaky/creepy agencies that work out of Fort Belvior.
Come on people this one is actually odd.

Just wanted some input on this facility I found using Maps Live. It's on the edge of Huntley Meadows Park in Alexandria, Virginia. It looks like the facility is accessed via the DHS / Coast Guard Telecommunications Command on Telegraph Road. Maps Live has mislabeled the Coast Guard facility as being part of Fort Belvoir.
It's a building surrounded by double barbed wire fence in the shape of an octagon, the thing sticks out like a sore thumb on satellite, which is how I found it. At each angle of the octagon there are camera/sensor posts and the building also has cameras at each corner. There are two visible antenna in the Maps Live birdseye.
I'm reasoning that it's a detention facilty because of the two square partitioned "open air" sections of the building. If you look closely at the birdseye, there are cameras located in the corners of these partitions in the center of the "open air" squares.
The facility is very near Fort Belvoir which is home to U.S. Army Intelligence and Security Command. Could be a detention facility for high valued targets.

That's not a detention facility. Everything security-wise is to keep intruders out, not in.
Actually, it's part of the Homeland Security's (Coast Guard) GPS positioning initiative. This particular facility houses most of the critical network substations, backup systems, etc. If you look REALLY close, and do some google research, you can see the antennae array that was buried juat inside the fence line.
The operations center is the first building just outside this secured area. Most of the other systems, satellite dish farms, etc., are located just 2 miles Southwest. Zoom in clsoe and you can see the dishes.
Here's the link.....
