Located in the vast stretches of Utah’s western desert, the Utah Test and Training Range (UTTR) supports operational testing and weapons evaluation for America’s Warfighters. The UTTR is headquartered at Hill Air Force Base. In partnership with the U.S. Air Force, JT4 provides support for UTTR services related to communications, weapons scoring, radar tracking, telemetry, data links and overall mission control.
As the largest block of overland, supersonic-authorized, restricted airspace in the contiguous United States, the UTTR also serves as a training ground for many of America’s top pilots. The range accommodates air-to-air combat, air-to-ground inert munitions, live bombing and gunnery training. The UTTR is also the only location in the United States capable of supporting the overland testing of cruise missiles.
Where we work
The UTTR is located about 80 miles west of Salt Lake City. It is divided into North and South Ranges, with Interstate 80 separating the two. The range has a ground footprint of 2,675 square miles and boasts an air space of over 19,000 square miles.
Our JT4 employees regularly travel to remote range sites to support missions, pull in fiber, install equipment, and perform other maintenance and support actions. Our excellent safety record while traveling across the UTTR to support our Warfighters is a testament to our dedication and focus in getting the job done safely.
Platforms and exercises supported
Although the F-35s are the most frequent guests, the UTTR plays host to all aircraft in the United States Air Force arsenal, including, but not limited to, the A-10, F-22 and B-52.
JT4 supports the UTTR with several multi-week test and evaluation events per year, such as the Weapons System Evaluation Program (WSEP) West. These programs play a crucial role in testing and evaluating weapons technology and ensuring that America’s Warfighter is in top condition. Data garnered here are used to validate weapons functionality and to further develop and refine other cutting-edge technology.
