this is a few miles due south from my OP

this looks like a weapon test site. the same aircraft and row of cars.... most of one row vanishes over the year, but the only odd things are did the aircraft fly there get flown or driven there. since all i see is a short dirt runway then the aircraft with and with out the bunker, and you dont see any progressive damage over the years just the big lot to the direct west used to store random odd crap. a recent image shows two new blue half moon shaped tarps with what looks like boxes. check your own google earth or where ever you get your satellite images from and post here if you can just to get a broad spectrum of what this "stuff" might be. more so on the OP if you could.

Targets for sure...probably for tank artillery...not aerial bombing practice (could be used for aerial runs with dummy bombs I suppose)!

Same sort of things in Indian Springs Nevada...you'll see targets like these set up everywhere!

My inner jerk says Cobra command hq. But really I agree with a target for testing munitions. The black looks like the tarp used to create retention ponds by constructions sights. Its most likely a pile of sand w black tarp for a visual target.

Welcome to Naval Air Weapons Station China Lake


Installation Information NAWS China Lake is located in the Western Mojave Desert region of California, approximately 150 miles north of Los Angeles. The installation is the Navy's largest single landholding, representing 85 percent of the Navy’s land for RDAT&E use and 38 percent of the Navy’s land holdings worldwide. In total, its two ranges and main site cover more than 1.1 million acres, an area larger than the state of Rhode Island.

Following the road to the right you come to a section on the map marked "Naval Weapons Center, China Lake".

Following the road to the left you come to an area with a lot of trailers lined up next each other.

I think for gauging the size we can try to estimate the size of the road. Most likely heavy equipment like bull dozers and tractor trailers access this road. They need at least 10' feet clearance in each direction.

I would estimate that the road is about 20' feet wide. So the structures in question are probably much much larger than 10m -33ft

I have no clue what it is but I think it's safe to say it is part of the "Naval Weapons facilities".

** face palms **

ok we get its china lake.

its like me saying " hay guys look look a ufo at area 51"
then the feed back i get is ......"yep thats area 51"

let us move past where it is please?
and on to what it might be.

its a weapon test range. ok
throw some weapons that might
require that type of a test set up.
with little to no damage.

thats why i said testing cavitation.
type of bomb/missile

en.wikipedia.org...

but its a NAVY test range they have the whole damn ocean for
a cavitation test.

why build a day spa on a weapons test range?

I think the area is used for weapons testing. They do all types of weapons testing including shallow water tests.

They appear to be mounds of sand. Which is often used to stop bullets after they've hit their target.

They are also doing special systems tests. Could be a decoy / battlefield target or radar beacon

Range Signal Density Enhancement System (RSDE). Provides a more realistic battlefield RF environment, in which both hostile and friendly emitters are represented with modern signal types.

Located at the Naval Air Warfare Center, China Lake, CA, RSDE is capable of generating 128 signals simultaneously with pulse densities in excess of five million pulses per second. RSDE supported the testing of the Navy's towed decoy and an EW suite on the Air Force's F-16. RSDE will be available to support additional planned testing on the F-14D, V-22 Osprey, and F/A-18E/F.



archive.clui.org...


A vast weapons development facility and testing range. Almost every munition in the US arsenal has been tested within this 1,723 square mile (more than a million acre) facility. Numerous laboratories and test ranges, located mostly in the north area of China Lake, support weapons development. In the southern portion of the reservation are electronic ranges that support training and weapons proving. China Lake is part of the Navy's Western Test Range complex, along with White Sands and Point Mugu. The base employs about 5,500 people, with an additional 2,500 more local contractors, and the annual budget is near $750 million.

Keep up the good work. Btw you ever get a chance their is something crazy out in the desert of arz there on google earth. Look through out the mesa's should be around the hopi reservations. Sorta looks like a serpent of some sort on a mountain top.

Edit to retract my statement. I thought I saw jet/rocket testing areas in 2 of the photos but now I don't think that is what they were.. Now I am left with only guessing that they were artillery / bombing sites.
