Redstone Technical Test Center
Definition/Scope: (RTC.ARMY.MIL) Redstone Technical Test Center (RTTC) has called the Redstone Arsenal installation home for half a century. Dating back to the 1950’s when Redstone became the nerve center of Army missilery, the Center has provided leading edge test and evaluation support to a wide customer base. In the early 1990’s the Center transitioned from the U.S. Army Missile Command (MICOM) to the U.S. Army Developmental Test Command (DTC), reporting to the U.S. Army Test and Evaluation Command (ATEC). The BRAC 2005 directed ATEC to effect the merger of the Aviation Technical Test Center (ATTC) and RTTC on 1 October 2010 (FY11) under the name of Redstone Test Center (RTC), headquartered at Redstone Arsenal (RSA), AL. The effect of this merger will be to bring aviation test and evaluation capabilities to RSA to support PEO’s and PO’s as well as aviation support to testing conducted by fellow DTC test centers.
