If you go to http://maps.google.com/maps?ll=38.571471,-121.216149&spn=0.004088,0.007318&t=k&hl=en
you will see the actual test stands used for the programs built and tested here.
This site has been discovered to have polluted the groundwater in the area with perchlorates and other VOC contaminants. The Aerojet Corp now owns the test stand area, and they as well as Douglas parent company Boeing have been mandated by the government to clean up this problem. More information in this PDF.
From: Ravendark54Cool thynx for the added info. I tried to find info other than the pollution clean up info, but theres nothing out there. I guess that since these are just admin buildings.
