Indiana Air Range Complex

The Indiana Air Range Complex (IARC) enables training and testing activities utilizing special use and managed airspace supporting both kinetic and non-kinetic air-to-ground operations. The IARC consists of Camp Atterbury, Muscatatuck Urban Training Center and Jefferson Range and the supporting associated special-use airspace.

The IARC supports unmanned aerial systems (UAS), close-air support training and two Indiana Air National Guard Wings, co-located on civilian airports. Numerous supporting airfields in and around the IARC can accept up to 747/C-5-size aircraft. We have access to five runways, including the Columbus Municipal Airport, Fort Wayne International Airport, Himsel Army Airfield, North Vernon Airport, and the Terre Haute Regional Airport, Hulman Field (HUF).
