The facility is one of those typical government research divisions, its used to, obviously, study aliens in their behavior.
The facility was use to study the James-Jennings family after Stan accidentally spoke in front of Colonel Fink. The family was put in a exact replica of their house to study in their natural habitat.
The facility also had a force-field to keep people in and can only be shut off manually.
When they think Stan, Freddy, and Gracie are aliens, Colonel Fink explained that the S.A.D would get budget increases, they would finally get a foosball table for the break room. Colonel Fink even admitted that he was gonna paint faces on the players to look like the gang at Space Command.
- The facility references the United States Air Force facility commonly known as Area 51.
- It also references any other typical facility that studies aliens to know what planet they are from and why are they here.
- Avery and Chloe had to go to the bathroom but didn't know the toilets are fake.
- The name "S.A.D", which Avery concludes its "sad", shows that this facility was doom to fail until they think Stan, Gracie, and Freddy are aliens.
