Area 52, Air Force Flight Test Center, Detachment 3

Found this sign near Pinyon Flats (I believe it is somewhere along road 5N044) when I hiked Bare Mountain back in 2009. Seems out of place. As far as I know, Detachment 3 AFFTC is based at Edwards AFB and was/is famous for Area 51 in Nevada. Curious if anyone knows more about AFFTC, Det-3, Area 52, etc.

Former RADAR, radio or some other type of tracking site I would guess.  I looked on a topo map but couldn't find the location listed on mine.

Wacky. I thought areas were in order geographically (as in 562 next to 51).

I'm appropriately scared.
