Test & Evaluation Services and Capabilities

White Sands Missile Range, DoD's largest, fully-instrumented, open-air range, provides America's Armed Forces, allies, partners, and defense technology innovators with the world's premiere research, development, test, evaluation (RDT&E), experimentation, and training facilities to ensure our nation's defense readiness.

The Range possesses extensive capabilities and infrastructure utilized by the Army, Navy, Air Force, NASA and other government agencies as well as universities, private industry and foreign militaries.  As a tri-service facility, WSMR is responsive to command guidance for all DoD activities.  WSMR supports the Warfighter with data collection and analysis, instrumentation development, modeling and simulation, research, assessment, and technical services.  The large land mass, controlled airspace, and skilled personnel support testing of conventional munitions, unmanned systems, distributed system, countermeasures, space systems and sensors, directed energy, high and low altitude missile systems, explosives testing, ground and aerial targets flights, and low observable precision strikes to ensure military readiness and training events.  The unique tri-service installation facility is dedicated to the Test and Evaluation (T&E), research, and the assessment of military weapon systems and commercial products through testing and training.  As the largest open-air land test range in the Department of Defense (DoD), we are home to capabilities such as state-of-the-art environmental testing chambers, an extensive data collection instrumentation suite, advanced data processing, and modeling & simulation (M&S) facilities.  This places WSMR in a unique position to address present and future challenges facing the Warfighter.
