Belonging to the United States Air Force, construction of this radar station began in 1951 and was completed two years later.

In 1971, control of the station was handed over to the Royal Canadian Air Force, and it was promptly closed.  Despite being part of the Pinetree Line, and having radar designed for use with the SAGE system, the station was never made part of the SAGE network.

At the time of its closing, it was equipped with an AN/FPS-93A, AN/FPS-6B and an AN/FPS-90, a higher powered version of the AN/FPS-6.
