The primary mission of the RTC is to provide superior technical expertise and state-of-the-art facilities and capabilities to plan, conduct, analyze and report the results of tests on aviation, missile and sensors systems, subsystems and components. Many of the systems under test are developed by
the local Program Executive Offices, the US Army Aviation and Missile Life Cycle Management Command (AMCOM) and the CCDC Aviation and Missile Center. RTC provides technical support to the local aviation, missile and weapon systems acquisition community, the US Army, and other customers (Department of Defense (DOD), private industry, Joint Services, and foreign governments) for weapon system research, development, production, and post-deployment testing activities. Test items associated with these mission areas consist of aircraft; aviation systems, missiles, rockets, and explosives; instrumentation, computers, software, communications, and other electronics; small caliber to large caliber weapons; soldier and support equipment; and developmental technologies.
