A view of the SAGE DC blockhouse (left) and the SAGE CC blockhouse (now JSS Sector Operations Control Center, SOCC) (right). [looking southeast]

Another view of the SAGE CC blockhouse, still in use housing the Western Air Defense Sector (WADS) headquarters and SOCC. [looking ~ south]

The rear of the SAGE complex, showing the old diesel power-production building. [looking west-northwest]

Static display located at the northwest corner of the SAGE / WADS complex. As stated on the plaque (see next photo), this was the antenna assembly for the AN/FPS-26A height-finder radar once operated at Makah AFS, WA.

Self-explanatory. [I believe the site number should actually say "Z-44," as the AN/FPS-26A was retired at the close of the SAGE era, before Makah AFS was redesignated as "J-80" for the JSS program.]
