    Proud Of Our Past, Focused On Our Future

    This year we are celebrating 100 years of excellence in Army testing.

    Aberdeen Test Center (ATC) has a long and accomplished history. It was founded as the Proof Department when the Army moved all testing from Sandy Hook, New Jersey, to an area of farmland on the Chesapeake Bay, which we now call Aberdeen Proving Ground. The first test shots were fired in January 1918, and since then, testing equipment, developing technology and meeting the needs of the Warfighter has been our mission. We have tested equipment used in every war since World War I, a monumental task performed by a great team of Americans.
