The Utah Test and Training Range (UTTR) is a military testing and training area located in Utah’s West Desert, approximately 80 miles west of Salt Lake City, Utah. It is currently the largest contiguous block of over-land supersonic-authorized restricted airspace in the contiguous United States.
The UTTR is host to a variety of training and testing missions for the U.S. Air Force, U.S. Army and U.S. Marine Corps.
The site is frequently used for the disposal of explosive ordnance, testing of experimental military equipment, as well as ground and air military training exercises.
This is where weapons such as the F-22 Raptor and the F-35 Lightning II, among others supersonic fighter jets, are put to the test under the most realistic circumstances authorized and available in the continental United States.
This video provides an in-depth look at the test capabilities and training tools available to the users of the UTTR.
The UTTR enhances combat readiness and superiority with real-world test environments.
