About this Project
Not all models need be complex to still present an accurate representation of the real thing. Archetype3D was hired to build two replica models of the Cobra Dane radar facility in Alaska. We used only available images to design and build the models.
- Model Size: 12″ x 24″ x 12″
- Model Scale: 1″= 12′
- Site Location: Eareckson Air Station in Alaska
The COBRA DANE radar is a single faced ground-based, L-band phased-array radar located in northern U.S. Indio-Pacific Command (USINDOPACOM) area of operations and operated by the U.S. Air Force.
The primary mission of COBRA DANE is to collect radar metric and signature data on foreign ballistic missile events during exo-atmospheric and early endo-atmospheric portions of flight and on selected space launches in early orbit in support of treaty monitoring, force modernization, and missile defense. Additional missions include collecting space surveillance data on new foreign launches and both known (cataloged) and unknown (uncatalogued) satellites in low-earth orbit for the Space Domain Awareness (SDA) Operations Cell.
Let's Build Something
Let one of our talented model makers discuss your project with you. You don’t need to have your plans finalized. We pride ourselves in being able to work with the customer from start to finish in the design and build process.
