  • NTTR: Scheduling keeps training operations on time, on target

    Similar to the way one might piece together a puzzle, the schedulers and NTTR members work together to de-conflict training requests and maintain the flow of operations on the range.
  • DoD, Warfare Center partner to introduce 5G technology at Nellis AFB

    On Oct. 8, 2020, the U.S. Air Force Warfare Center announced the award of a Department of Defense (DoD) contract to build the 5G network infrastructure and support services necessary to establish a dual-use, military and commercial network on Nellis Air Force Base, Nevada and the Nevada Test and Training Range (NTTR) as directed in the FY20 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).
  • NTTR: Conservation through cooperation

    The NTTR and the 99th CES work closely with local, state, and federal environmental agencies to sustain the range while maintaining military capabilities. They employ teams of biologists, anthropologists and natural resource managers to ensure the impact on the range remains as minimally invasive as possible.
  • NTTR: Training our way to victory

    Red Flag, an air-to-air combat exercise for pilots, and Green Flag, a ground combat training exercise, are two of the largest training operations in the Department of Defense. The NTTR enables training opportunities like these, while also providing a practice home to the U.S. Air Force Aerial Demonstration team and daily flying operations for squadrons based at Nellis.
  • Red Flag adjusts for today’s challenges

    The 414th Combat Training Squadron (CTS), which oversees Red Flag, is making changes to the exercise for improved efficiency at Nellis Air Force Base, Nev. Red Flag is a realistic multi-domain training exercise that maximizes the combat readiness and survivability of participants by providing a robust, accurate training environment. While early Red Flag exercises focused on survivability of combat pilots, Red Flag integrates the five core functions of the Air Force: Intelligence Reconnaissance Surveillance (ISR), Command and Control, Air Superiority, Strike and Personnel Recovery to ensure Airmen are ready for today’s fight.
  • HH-60G ACCIDENT INVESTIGATION RELEASED

  • NTTR/RSS certifies arresting system

    The Nellis Testing and Training Range Support Squadron completed a certification engagement of the Barrier Arresting Kit (BAK)-12 aircraft arresting system on the airfield runway Nov. 15, 2016, at Creech Air Force Base, Nevada. The purpose of the system is to provide a way for pilots in the surrounding airspace to safely land in the event of an aircraft malfunction or other emergency circumstances, said Kelsey, powered support systems technician with the NTTR/RSS.
  • NTTR: Tip of readiness spear

    “The NTTR is an asset of the United States of America, all Department of Defense agencies, national security agencies including other governmental agencies and our allied partners,” said VanHerck. “We routinely bring partners to the NTTR to train just as if we were going to go into combat with them, and that is a crucial capability for us. All this success comes at a price as our ability to meet warfighter requirements has exceeded our capacity. We continue to look for innovative ways to address these issues, but the reality is it will likely get worse before it gets better as 5th generation aircraft stretch the capabilities of our range.”
