The Government of Canada contracted out the operation and maintenance of these radar stations to a company called Nasittuq, a joint venture of two other companies, ATCO Structures and Logistics Ltd. and Pan Arctic Inuit Logistics Corporation. The Department of National Defense leased land on a native reserve, and constructed a testing facility used in the development and upgrade of the sites in the arctic. It employs the AN/FPS-124 short range search radar, used as a gap-filler in areas not covered by it's long-range counterpart, the AN/FSP-117.
This was a really chance find. I was browsing around Google Earth, and I happened to notice some strange shapes. The area I was looking in had very low resolution imagery, so there was no way I could tell what it was, but it sure looked interesting.
So, I set out for a sunny day of exploring on a long weekend, and took a run up a dirt road to have a look at what this might be. After passing a couple of piles of garbage, and a seagull-infested pile of rotting fish, I rounded a corner to find this. A short-range development site, right here, in the bush, near a road I've passed by on countless trips. I have to admit, I was surprised.
