The Mars Test Site (MTS) is a military base, and a remote detachment of Edwards Air Force Base. The base’s primary purpose is to support development and testing of experimental aircraft and weapons systems.
Though the name Mars 2 is used in official CIA documentation, other names used for the facility include DET 86, Mars Base, MTS, or simply “the test site.”
The existence of the base is not known to the general public.
