I've seen several photographs of a Gemini spacecraft and an Agena target vehicle located on a large wooden platform outdoors. I assume it is somewhere on the Cape, but I cannot figure out where. Anyone know where that testing was done?

I believe it was at the Radar Boresite Range seen at lower right in this 1963 map of the KSC Industrial Area.

Thank you -- I never would have found it. Originally I thought it was the wooden structure behind Mission Control. However on closer examination the surroundings did not match. I'm not sure what the structure behind the control center was used for -- any idea?
