HIPAR building and radar foundation,
Nike site NY-80C, Riker Hill Art Park, Livingston, NJ.

The circular foundation in the foreground once contained the site's LOPAR (Low Power Acquisition Radar) unit. Two similar circular foundations contained the TTR (Target Tracking Radar) and MTR (Missile Tracking Radar). In the background, the HIPAR building can be seen. The large HIPAR (High Power Acquisition Radar) tower and antenna (with its characteristic geodesic radome) was located to the left and behind this building. All that remains of the HIPAR today is its large hexagonal concrete foundation. The HIPAR building is currently used as a print studio by local artists.
