Not Fort Irwin.

That's part of the ECR, called Randsburg Wash. The airspace is R-2524.

The twin towers 3/4 mile southeast of that facility are used to suspend target in the air, for testing of missile fuzes.

The facility itself has a series of four elevated pads on which various sensor, defense, and threat platforms can be mounted. Up the hill just to the north is another similar platform.

About the ECR: ECR is the Navy’s principle open-air range for the test and evaluation of airborne electronic combat systems. ECR supports a combination of land and naval systems (littoral
threat). The ECR provides engineering support,
developmental and operational testing, analysis and training resources for users of systems that counter or penetrate air defenses.

ECR has the capability to support Top secret and special access level security missions with minimum electromagnetic interference.
