I have known about this patch for several years after first encountering it as an "EG&G radar patch from the test site" (i.e., Groom Lake). Of course EG&G has since become URS and now AECOM, but I digress. The main point is that it's from the EW/RCS range at Groom.

Yes, the silver ball on the emblem represents one of the aluminum calibration spheres. The 11001001 has been driving me crazy though. There are so many possible conversions and it was even the title of a Star Trek: The Next Generation episode. I do think the black rhombus with the white question mark is the very best explanation so far. It fits well with other test site iconography.
