Area 49-B is a minor (later major) location in 3Below. It's a top secret military base that belongs to the US military which captures and dissects alien lifeforms.
The Area 49-B has existed for several decades. Its members are dedicated to capture and imprison any form of extraterrestrial life that reaches Earth, without worrying about their motives. Its existence is kept secret from the rest of the world, but there have been mere rumors about experiments with extraterrestrials that carry out there.
The Area is highly fortified with explosive walls and advanced security systems. Because of their high contact with aliens, they have been able to assimilate much of their technology.
