Noise deflection would make a lot of sense. Especially if whatever goes on inside the hangar, and on the ramp that I expect to materialize south of it, has a characteristic sound that is not easy to explain with normal operations at the base. The berm is angled right to best shield in the direction of Tikaboo Valley (where people would be most likely to hear the noise).
A blast containment seems omewhat less likely. It would have to be directed towards the base, which is north.
