This is the first pass of the radar geometry. The second pass will include a large base platform for the whole tower, elevating the tower even more (and possible providing a vehicle elevator for quick station-level access. The globe functions as a weather radar for scientific observation and severe weather warning for the station. The two disc platforms will each support a radar on the outer edge which is capable of rotating around the tower. One tracks horizontally. One tracks vertically. These will be more for tracking planetary bodies, and, in emergencies, tracking for the base's light defensive missile turrets.
