White Sands Missile Range (WSMR) supports a large variety of Sensor Testing. The bulk of sensor testing at WSMR occurs in our open air test range. This exposes the sensor to a real world environment, facilitating full system performance testing. Additionally, WSMR has supplementary laboratory environments for certain types of sensors testing.
Sensors tested include:
A list of advantages WSMR offers include:
- Bombs, artillery shells, and submunitions
- Missiles systems under test such as Patriot, Hellfire, Navy Standard Missile, Tomahawk, GMLRS, ATACMS and JASSM
- Manned fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft such as F-16, F-22, Tornado, Apache and UH-60
