from this it looks like point of origin is behind the mountain, terrestrial. IS there a research or military facility there?

The Russian navy is planning to launch Bulava missiles from the newly constructed Borey-class submarines “Aleksander Nevsky” and “Vladimir Monomakh”.
One of the submarines will launch a single missile, while the other will conduct a salvo, RIA Novosti reports.

A Bulava SLBM was fired toward the Kura test site in Kamchatka during state trials of the “Alexander Nevsky” nuclear-powered submarine in the White Sea on Friday. This was the first time the submarine launched a missile. On the second minute of the flight the rocket experienced a malfunction in one of its systems and fell down somewhere in the Arctic Ocean, RIA Novosti reports, citing a source in the Ministry of Defense.
The day after the failed launch, Defense Minister Sergey Shoygu ordered to halt state trials of the Borey-class “Alexander Nevsky” and “Vladimir Monomakh” submarines, designed to carry Bulava, and to hold five additional launches of the troubled SLBM.
The next five test launches will be conducted from the world’s largest nuclear-powered submarine, the nearly forty years old Typhoon class “Dmitry Donskoy”, Rossiyskaya Gazeta writes.
