The Nevada National Security Site (NNSS) is an expanse of federally controlled land
and facilities in a remote region of southern Nevada. The approximate
1,375 square miles that make up the NNSS are surrounded by
the Nellis Air Force Range and unpopulated land controlled by the U.S.
Bureau of Land Management. Located 65 miles northwest of Las Vegas, the
NNSS is one of the largest secure areas in the United States,
due to buffer zones to the west, north, and east. More than 1,000 support
buildings and other facilities are spread across the site.
