There are few research facilities in Sirius as mysterious as the rocky white fortress that is Willard Station, hidden within the misty depths of the Tahoe Ice Cloud in the California System. Liberty Security Force transports frequent the station, although their contents are always shielded from scanning, and the Liberty Navy is careful to keep the inquisitive and the insane away from the station, either by the expedient of making verbal demands to withdraw, or simply allowing their massed energy weapons to do the talking for them.
Much of the research at the facility is classified, though since the highly publicized attack on Willard in 800AS by a seemingly "rogue" Rheinland Military battle group, security has been further tightened with additional weapon platforms and patrols. It is known, however, that Artifacts of unknown origin are researched here, although where they come from is anyone's guess.
