- LH2/LOX production plant
- 2 air traffic doppler radars

    does this have anything to do with the Jarvis HLV developed by Fausto? bit of a coincidence...

    also, its almost exactly on the space shuttles deorbit/re-entry path... another coincidence...

    It has nothing to do with Jarvis HLV. The island's name is Jarvis. That's the reason it's named Jarvis Space Center.

    Space Shuttles deorbit/re-entry path - also coincidence - the base's primary functions are GTO/GEO operations (that's why it's located on equator)
