Cell 3 was one first structures built when the site was expanded for supersonic testing.
However, despite its importance, this supersonic testing cell (designed to exceed the testing capabilities
of Cell 1 and 2) has only a small presence above ground
and is dwarfed by the neighbouring Air House and
Cell 4. With most of the cell built underground, and
the main control room housed in the Computer Building,
only a few scattered buildings give its location away.
A sign pointing the way to the Cell 3 Test Area Office. This will lead away from Cell 3 as the TAO is in the Computer Building.
