Known as the Center of the Aerospace Testing Universe, Edwards AFB is responsible for ensuring that our Warfighters are provided with the best tools available in order to successfully execute their missions. Of the units of command residing at Edwards, JT4 supports the 412th Test Wing, an organization within the Air Force Test Center (AFTC). The AFTC is responsible for conducting and analyzing data from ground and flight tests of aircraft, weapons systems and other modeling and simulation software for the U.S. Air Force.
JT4’s high-performing team of engineering, technical professionals and support personnel provide critical flight test functions and capabilities while also applying innovative and cost saving solutions for the 412th Test Wing. Our team provides a full spectrum of engineering and technical support services for test programs such as the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF).
Innovative to the core
Where we work
We support the research, development and testing of aerospace systems at Edwards AFB. The base occupies roughly 640 miles of desert and is home to the U.S. Air Force Test Pilot School and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA) Armstrong Flight Research Center. The range’s more than 20,000 square miles of airspace include three supersonic corridors and four aircraft spin areas (unique airspace with easy access to a runway that allows for aggressive and high-risk developmental testing of aircraft).
Edwards AFB’s diverse blend of natural resources, climate, technical and human support have aided in its successful development as a leader in flight testing and support. Virtually every aircraft system that has entered the USAF inventory has been tested and supported at Edwards. JT4 employees can be found hard at work all over the base, including our Range Management Office, mission control rooms, engineering design and development office, as well as each of the various aircraft squadron test center locations.
Platforms and exercises supported
JT4 is grateful to be a part of Edwards AFB, where cutting-edge technology is developed and tested every day and making history is nothing out of the ordinary. Edwards has seen more major milestones in flight than anywhere in the world and is at the forefront of all major aerospace developments.
