About Us

Who We Are

The U.S. Army Electronic Proving Ground (EPG) re-opened Fort Huachuca in 1954 and is the oldest unit on post. We are one of seven Army Major Range Test and Facility Bases (MRTFBs) and defined as the designated core set of unique and critical DoD Test and Evaluation (T&E) infrastructure and associated workforce that must be preserved as a national asset to provide T&E capabilities in support of the DoD acquisition system. EPG executes developmental testing in direct support of Army Futures Command, Program Executive Offices, DoD partners and industry partners to ensure our Warfighters are enabled to dominate the future battlefield.

What We Do

Our mission is to plan, conduct, analyze and report the results of developmental tests, in support of our Network, EW and C4SIR customers. In addition to conducting developmental tests, we support the Army operational test community in the conduct of operational tests, user tests, and experiments. Our C4I expertise allows us to support customers in the joint and training communities as well. We are experts in distributed systems of systems testing.

Our Chain Of Command

EPG is a test center of the U.S. Army Test and Evaluation Command (ATEC), headquartered at the Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD.

Where We're Located

Our headquarters is located on Fort Huachuca, in Southeastern Arizona, with a field office on Fort Cavazos, TX. EPG is unique within the DOD because of its naturally quiet electromagnetic environment, its unique specialized facilities, its close relationship with the Army training community, and its ability to use the expansive real estate of southern Arizona. Operations are routinely possible on 70,000 acres at Ft. Huachuca, 23,000 acres on Wilcox Dry Lake, more than 100,000 acres at Gila Bend, and with prior coordination, on approximately 62 million acres of federal and state owned land.

How We Test

We conduct bench tests, lab tests, field tests, and large-scale, geographically distributed systems of systems tests. We employ a mix of live and simulated instrumentation and assets.
