TONOPAH TEST RANGE
The Tonopah Test Range (TTR) is a 625 square mile area located
at the very north end of the Nellis Complex, about 32 miles southeast
of Tonopah, Nevada. The primary entrance is off of Highway 6 at
the north end of the facility. Dirt road access points also exist
on the south and east sides of the range.
First opened in 1957, it has been a major test facility for DOE
funded weapon programs. The facility is heavily instrumented with
camera and radar tracking devices that record data from artillery
shell testing, bomb drops, cruise missiles and rocket tests. In
1984, TTR also became host to the first F117 Stealth fighter squadron.
Another facility located in TTR is the Tolicha Peak Electronic
Combat Range. Tonopah Test Range also contains the somewhat mysterious
Site Four, located near its eastern boundary. What facility would
be complete without a recreation facility, check out Base Camp.
Travelling to and from Tonopah is provided by the Cheshire Airstrip.
