RCAF Station Station Alsask was opened in 1963 as part of the Pinetree Line of NORAD radar stations. The station was later renamed CFD Alsask when the military branches were merged. The station was part of 44 Radar Squadron and had a call sign of November, Jade Ring. The station was disbanded in 1987 and has been taken over by the village. The station property became part of the Rural Municipality of Milton when the village of Alsask was dissolved in 2009.
The station consisted of three radar domes, housing, a school, swimming pool, with a staff complement of 125 (military) and 60 civilian workers.
The one remaining radar dome, built in 1961, was designated a heritage property in 2002. The structure situated on the 2.5 hectare parcel of land houses a fiberglass dome used to protect the radar equipment from the weather on a three story tower, with the lower stores consisting of a computer level and command/control level.
