Camp Hero & Montauk Air Force Station During the Cold War, the Air Force's long range radar sites would have detected the approach of Soviet bombers when they were still far from American shores. The Montauk Air Force Station, operated by the 773rd Radar Squadron, helped to defend the New York metro area and the northeastern United States from 1948 through 1981. This Web site provides comprehensive historical information as well as information relating to the future restoration of Camp Hero and the Montauk Air Force Station at Montauk, Long Island, New York.
