The facility was known as the "Multifunction Array Radar" (MAR-I) and it was the first prototype of a phased-array radar developed for the Nike-X missile defense program. The MAR-I was salvaged during the fall of 1970 by New Mexico Tech. The salvaged MAR-I amplifiers came to be known as "Colgate Paramps", named after Stirling Colgate who was then president of Tech (1965-1975). . 4 p.m. in Workman 101
