    Making a Difference in How We Fight

    After more than 15 years of war, the world remains a dangerous place. With the ongoing threat of ISIS in the Middle East, an aggressive Russia, an unpredictable regime in North Korea, and the constant, borderless, happen-anytime threat to our nation’s cybersecurity, Aberdeen Test Center has a key role in maintaining the Army’s readiness. Last year, the Chief of Staff of the Army, GEN Mark A. Milley, said, “You and I, as an Army, have to maintain the capability and the readiness. We have to sustain that which we have learned over 15 hard years of lessons learned.”

    Earlier this year, in a speech to the Association of the U.S. Army, GEN Milley reiterated this message, saying, “Readiness was our priority last year, that’s our priority this year and by necessity that needs to continue to be our priority.” The mission of ATC, and that of the Army Test and Evaluation Command (ATEC), is unique to the Army, in that we support the full spectrum of its systems.
