Atterbury-Muscatatuck has four distinct functions: (1) exist as a Power Generation Platform (PGP), as identified by FORSCOM; (2) perform as a primary Mobilization Force Generation Installation (pMFGI), in concert with 1st Army; (3) support Army Force Generation (ARFORGEN) training initiatives as a Regional Collective Training Capability (RCTC) Installation; and (4) provide continuous, traditional training support to Active and Reserve Forces. To perform these functions effectively, Camp Atterbury Indiana (CAIN) and its non-contiguous range, the Muscatatuck Urban Training Complex (MUTC), offer a myriad of unique training and testing possibilities.
Atterbury-Muscatatuck can participate in distributed training events located at any joint maneuver training center (JMTC) site throughout the world with capabilities that provide collective simulation and gaming-based training exercises capable of replicating complex, operational environments.
This robust simulations capability includes a 25-acre Training Aids, Devices, Simulators, and Simulations (TADSS) complex; approximately 10,000 square foot Training Support Center (TSC); and a 25-acre Joint Simulations, Training and Exercise Center (JSTEC) with Army National Guard Mission Training Complex (MTC).

The JTEN 2.0 node digitally connects the training site to other simulators or exercises in other locations throughout the world, including the Joint Readiness Training Center, National Training Center, National Simulations Center, and exercises internationally at both the SECRET and UNCLASSIFIED levels. JTEN 2.0 can create a virtual world by connecting multiple simulations systems to operate for a single mission objective or exercise.
Atterbury-Muscatatuck Ranges provide a comprehensive training platform for managers and leaders at all command levels. When incorporated with available maneuver areas, leaders can immerse their organizations in a very diverse and challenging training environment
The full complement of traditional ranges and venues at Atterbury-Muscatatuck offer boundless possibilities for full-immersion training. Leaders have a wide selection of venues from which to plan realistic and intensive training programs, including at Muscatatuck Urban Training Complex, the DoD's largest urban training facility, and the Bowden Drop Zone, one of the longest personnel drop zones east of the Mississippi River.
Atterbury-Muscatatuck also has Live Fire Shoot Houses, Breach Houses, multiple small village/MOUT* sites, an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) Defeat Lane, and an Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) launch and recovery area with a paved 1,800-foot runway. Click here for more.
