Complex 10 was constructed along with Complex 9 in 1956 in support of the Navaho program. Although Complex 10 never hosted a Navaho launch, exercises were conducted there with Navahos on mobile launchers. Complex 10 was used for a handful of launches; 6 Jason rockets and 3 Alpha Draco rockets were launched prior to the closure of the Complex in 1959.

In the photos above, you can see the remains of an underground cable tray that went out to Complex 10.
