Aberdeen Test Center (ATC) opened its gates and started an exceptional journey in January 1918, with the firing of a howitzer on the Main Front Firing Range. Aberdeen's history is as exciting as its future. Testing Army systems: from the French 75 MM to the Atomic Cannon; the Christy, Sherman, Patton, Sheridan, and Abrams Tank. These systems were proven at the test center while our soldiers were in the cauldron of war... WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm and, most recently, Operation Enduring Freedom. This is the heritage that builds a soul for the test center; a commitment to those under fire, in harm's way. This focus for over 80 years brings a profound knowledge, technical strength and professional courage that assures our fighting forces have the finest weapons and equipment possible. On this bedrock, our future is built. Our dazzling past, however, is eclipsed by the promise of the future. The Army's vision of a digital force, networked, lethal yet light, agile, survivable, and supportable presents us with greater technical challenges than ever. The Army 2010 and beyond has already propelled ATC into pioneering efforts in test technology, while using the most modern business practices to minimize cost to the customers.
