Muscatatuck's CyberTropolis is a cyber “live-fire” range capable of supporting live offensive and defensive operations. The well-integrated cyber-physical environment is embedded in a real city that includes a physical metropolitan infrastructure, including:

  • 1,000 acre urban and rural landscape
  • More than 200 brick and mortar structures
  • Managed airspace
  • 180-acre reservoir
  • 1.5 miles of subterranean tunnels
  • EME (electromagnetic effects system)
  • Doctrinally correct Combined Arms Collective Training Facility (CACTF)
  • Human elements

The multi-domain environment at Muscatatuck reflects the 21st Century battlefield, which includes land, sea, air, space and cyberspace, and also comprises human terrain to increase realism. Everything in the city and surrounding property – including the people – is “in play.” MUTC offers a robust and realistic electromagnetic environment, telecommunications infrastructure and a well-developed, closed network wireless environment consisting of 2G, 3G, and 4G LTE, Wi-Fi and other RF technologies.

What You Can Do Here

Muscatatuck's CyberTropolis allows you to customize any type of training or developmental testing scenario your unit or organization might need to fulfill homeland or national defense mission requirements. Our Granite System, a closed-loop network comprising a 2G, 3G, and 4G Cellular phone system, plus Wi-Fi, PTP and PTMP, replicates multiple towers/providers and provides unique capabilities in various electromagnetic and communications exploitation events. We can replicate the electromagnetic effects (EME) environment of any major city in the world and replay recordings to replicate the EME environment of various operating environments. Perform penetrating developmental testing, attack and defend the network, and more. Our subject matter experts will customize the scenario to meet your needs.

Electromagnetic (EME) Capabilities

This chart shows the concept of what a Joint Urban Test Capability is required to have, the design, and how it is applied at Muscatatuck.

Crane NSWC manages the Atterbury-Muscatatuck Electromagnetic Environment (EME), and Electronic Attack (EA) Clearance for ground-based systems. If a customer requires this capability, we will facilitate the linkage to Crane.

Email a Cyber/EME specialist for more information on these capabilities.
