Galeta Island

Galeta Island was the site of a U.S. military communications facility from the 1930s through 2002 at which time it was turned over to the government of the Republic of Panama. The communications facility located on the island included an operations building located in the center of a U.S. Navy AN/FRD-10A(V) antenna array which is a Circularly Disposed Antenna Array (CDAA) also known as a Wullenweber array.

The island was shared with the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute (STRI) which still maintains a research facility on the island. U.S. military activity ceased on the island after 2002 while tropical research continues in a separate facility located just east of the former communications facility.
