Automatic ground control station
Entrance to the automatic ground control station Zoom

The stairs and plant-choked entrances lead to the automatic ground control station. This area extended below the pad, and was 215 feet long and 38 feet wide. Its spaces held electrical and mechanical checkout and firing equipment, and served as a distribution point for power and high-pressure gas.

The lone wall standing in the distance is all that remains of the ECS (Environmental Control System)  building. The revetment to its left is the remains of a high-pressure gas facility for GN2 (gaseous nitrogen).
