    DPG Chemists Develop New Analytical Method for CWA

    Dugway Proving Ground chemists have developed a new method for solid sorbent tube (SST) analysis of chemical warfare agents (CWA). The innovative approach is to analyze an eluate from the SST using a Gas Chromatography Triple Quadrople Mass Spectrometry (GC-QQQ) instead of thermally analyzing the SST using a Gas Chromatography-Flame Photometric Detector (GC-FPD). The end result... Read More

    A small unmanned aircraft system (sUAS) is shown in flight at Dugway Proving Ground. The sUAS is one of three platforms utilized during the two-year project to locate golden eagle nests on the installation.

    Project of the Year

    A project utilizing unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) to monitor golden eagle nests at Dugway Proving Ground (DPG) has won national recognition. The project was named the 2020 Resource Conservation and Resiliency Project of the Year by the DoDís Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP)... Read More

    Commercial Aircraft Decontamination Efficacy Test conducted November 2020 to March 2021 at Dugway Proving Ground. The test determined if current means of neutralizing the SARS-C0V-2 virus in a passenger jet, which causes the disease COVID-19, are effective, and to possibly find even better methods.

    DPG joins lab battle against coronavirus

    The BioTesting Division (BTD) will soon start a study to determine how severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is transmitted among airline passengers. The efficacy of practices to decontaminate the virus that causes COVID-19 will also be studied... Read More

    The sun sets on the first Technology Experimentation and Characterization Field Trials (TECFT) held at Dugway Proving Ground. The Active Standoff Chamber (left) and the Joint Ambient Breeze Tunnel (right) can be seen in the distance. Both are unique to the West Desert Test Center and were utilized during the first week of the TECFT event to test new detection technologies.

    TECFT Highly Successful

    Dugway Proving Ground (DPG) has been in the business of testing for more than 75 years. From its beginnings in 1942, DPG has always been associated with chemical/biological defense. In 2019, DPG attained an internationally recognized certification for its chemical defense testing. This certification is with the International Organization for Standardization, and is designated as ISO 17025:2017. Read More

About DPG

For more than 75 years, Dugway Proving Ground has empowered our nation's defenders against persistent and evolving threats.

Dugway Proving Ground is responsible for testing and evaluating nearly all Department of Defense (DoD) chemical and biological defense capabilities. Within its nearly 800,000 acres, there are numerous state-of-the-art laboratories, unique test chambers and extensive field test grids.

In addition to chem/bio defense testing and evaluation, Dugway supports additional critical U.S. Army and DoD activities, including training for military and first responders, testing and evaluation of obscurants, and the development, testing, and integration of unmanned aircraft systems.
