Indiana Air Range Complex

Atterbury-Muscatatuck will configure the capabilities of the Indiana Air Range Complex to enhance your specific training experience. The IARC is embedded with, and overlays, Atterbury-Muscatatuck and Jefferson Proving Ground. The complex includes two air-to-ground impact areas and associated Special Use Airspace for both kinetic and virtual use.The Indiana Air Range Complex is an integral part of the larger enterprise, which also incorporates Muscatatuck Urban Training Complex.

The special use airspace and air-to-ground ranges are coupled with two Indiana Air National Guard Wings, co-located on civilian airports, with runways able to accept 747/C-5-size aircraft employing their Fighter, Intel and ASOS mission sets with all associated support functions. Contact scheduling

map of Indiana Air Range Complex Available are:

  • Air-to-ground and JTAC SMEs
  • Air scored targets
  • Strafe targets
  • Rocket targets
  • Laser capabilities
  • Day and night operations for manned and unmanned activity
  • Restricted airspace for unmanned flight training and testing
  • Ever-increasing 5th Gen training capabilities

 

For extended LVC training and testing capabilities, Atterbury-Muscatatuck partners with Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, the Air Force Institute of Technology, Air Force Research Laboratory and the Naval Surface Warfare Center - Crane Division (NAVSEA Crane).

The Indiana Training Range Complex has evolved its training capacity to include the electromagnetic spectrum to its current offerings of airspace and ground training space.  The process evolved from a gap analysis for training needed for the RPA community in partnership with Wright-Patterson Air Force Base (WPAFB)  The training model is to create a dense, complex operating space by exploiting combined force training, both live and virtual.

Since the first live/virtual/constructive (LVC) event in August 2014, the training space has grown to include WPAFB, Camp Atterbury, Muscatatuck and Jefferson Range.

The partnership between the Army National Guard, Air National Guard and the U.S. Air Force has enabled us to truly provide the best LVC training capability, globally for tactical level training execution with combined force employment.

Another unique training attribute is that it is exportable, that is, we have “delivered it in real-time” to other agencies at locations including Fort Campbell, Norfolk and Fort Bragg where the C2 nodes are tasked in executing decision matrices. 

The training model has evolved to address the inclusion of the DGS units. Using existing networks and working cross-domain solutions, we are able to “plug-in” any applicable unit or agency to participate in our scenarios.
