"Secret Runway" at NW edge of White Sands?

I'm sure this has been covered before, but....

I was looking at White Sands on Google Maps satellite view to see the old shuttle runways and I noticed a small facility tucked in the NW corner of the White Sands area, right up against the mountains at: http://bit.ly/1RbA4ID

Lat/Long is 33.174113, -106.564505

At first glance, it looks like a runway. At closer glance, it looks like an RCS facility with satellite uplink.

Anyone know the function and history of this small facility?
