Deer Point, Long Island, HD Kodiak
Home  |  Kodiak

The Group 2 Command Post was a single room station occupying the lower level of a two-story station set atop a 40-foot wooden tower. Personnel here were responsible for coordinating the fire of Battery Const. #296 and Battery Tactical #4, the two batteries located on Long Island.

Above the command post was an equipment room for the SCR-582 general surveillance radar unit that was installed on the top of the tower. This radar site was capable of detecting both surface craft and low-flying aircraft for a range of more than 20 miles.

A small shed stands near the tower debris.
