The radar station was a structure used by GDI, Nod and CABAL during the Second Tiberium War and the Firestorm Crisis as a communications platform, replacing the obsolete Communications center.

Background

The radar station's primary feature is a large satellite dish for connecting to the network of satellites orbiting the Earth. It is also useful for better coordination between units, provide guidance for aircraft, and grants secure access to classified information (namely, access to advanced units and structures).

Some radar stations act as early warning systems, like the Nod radar array complex, which calls in additional Nod forces when Tratos' rescue mission was underway should it be left intact. GDI stations are also notable for having its own copy of EVA for better decentralization of command.
