Blackbird/U-2 camera calibration target?
My guess would be it's part of the Skunk Works story- test targets for the calibration of (probably) Blackbird recon cameras and/or INS/astronav suite. There are two further artificial designs just N (by W) and if you follow the straight track S (by E) a few miles there is a large rectangular grid pattern which would fit with spherical error testing.....Any better ideas?
