Part of a larger archaeology testing of the Naval Air Station Willow Grove, PA as the US Navy turns over some properties for other uses. Site of the development of the Pitcairn-Cierva Autogyro and successful airmail carriers before sale of field to the US by Harold Pitcairn. Research here also led to numerous developments in aviation and aerospace, i.e., in navigation, GPS. A rented Trimble GeoXH GPS with ESRI ArcPad for GIS integration and recording of tests and features was used.
