This photo of the Zeus Launch area, just to the east of the previous photo. The building
at left is the Launch Control Building (LCB). From here it looks like any other building.
However, this building also has an underground level as well. There is another berm to
the right of the LCB and further to the right, aross the open space, is the Zeus Launch
Cell. It isn't clear in this photo if the cell is under construction or if a missile is
being loaded into the cell with all the cranes and equipment around. The cell launch
allowed more of a vertical launch instead of the angle used by the launcher shown in the
previous photo. From the underground level of the LCB, there was a tunnel which ran
both left (west) and right (east) to the launcher pits/cell.
After the Zeus program ended, the berms to the right of
the LCB was removed and made into a parking lot. The LCB was, and still is, used by
the Patriot system program. The launch cell remains, although closed
