There are several Russian radar sites of various flavors around Cedar Gate and around the Area 51 North Gate near Rachel. They serve two purposes: To simulate threads during Red Flag exercises, and, more importantly, to test new developments and design modifications to existing aircraft against hardware that these aircraft would likely be facing in a real combat situation. Recently some modifications to the B-2 have been tested against these sites. There was a thread in the forum not too long ago. The attached link has more information on the radar sites around Cedar Gate. I believe it also shows the Fan Song site.
