We have a distinct mission and a history that sets us apart. Our site is at Camp Evans in Wall, New Jersey. The site is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Camp Evans was once the 1914 Marconi Belmar Trans-Atlantic Wireless station, opened world-wide wireless communications, played an important role in W.W.I Trans-Atlantic communications, the first campus of The King's College, played a key role the development of radar as an effective W.W.II secret weapon, opened space communications in 1946, was a cold war technology site, a nuclear weapons research site, visited by Senator Joseph McCarthy as he suspected a communist spy ring may have been operating here, the birthplace of satellite based hurricane tracking, was a pre-NASA space research site, and is a black history site.
Many of the most significant contributors to communications technology from the early days of spark-gap wireless technology to 1998 when microwave, fiber optics and satellite technology were proven technologies have worked at this historic site.
We are the home of the National Broadcasters Hall of Fame. We are actively working to open the TIROS 1 and 2 Ground Control Station building as a space science education facility at the former Project Diana site.
The National Park Service has approved our application to use 37 acres of Camp Evans and all the buildings in the historic district to help improve the public understanding of science, technology, and science history.
InfoAge and its member groups are now working to preserve Camp Evans and its new educational mission is under way. We are cleaning around buildings, painting building exteriors and interiors, and making repairs to expand our capacity. You are invited to join this excellent work to save history, honor the communication pioneers of wireless, W.W.I, W.W.II, space exploration and the cold war.
