What is this pattern on this runway? What is its function?

• To be honest, this device shown here is aviation-related (They use it to check the RCS of aircraft/aircraft parts), it is just not a runway. – SMS von der Tann Sep 30 '16 at 22:47

• Interesting answer, but it doesn't seem to answer the question of What is this pattern. No downvote here, just saying. – J Walters Oct 1 '16 at 2:07
