Background

The NTTR is the largest contiguous air and ground space available for peacetime military operations in the free world. The range occupies 2.9 million acres of land and 5,000 square miles of airspace that is restricted from civilian air traffic over-flight and another 7,000 square miles of Military Operating Area, or MOA, which is shared with civilian aircraft. The 12,000-square-nautical-mile range provides a realistic arena for operational testing and training aircrews to improve combat readiness. A wide variety of live munitions can be employed on targets on the range.

The NTTR organization is composed of eight directorates: Director of Operations, Mission Support, Program Management, Plans and Programs, Financial Management, Safety, Range Support, and Security.
