Aberdeen Proving Ground (MD) (Images of America)
Situated in southeastern Harford County and edged by the Chesapeake Bay and the Bush and Gunpowder Rivers, the U.S. Army bases known as Aberdeen Proving Ground, Edgewood Arsenal, and Fort Hoyle have been home to ordnance, chemical, technology, and artillery commands. The photographs in this volume include scenes of the fertile farmlands of Aberdeen, Edgewood, and Michaelsville, and their transformation, which began in 1917, into the military base known today as Aberdeen Proving Ground, or APG. Views of daily life on base include the “Toonerville” Trolley, a small-scale train that shuttled commuting personnel between the main gate and the buildings on post. The images document changes in the ways wars have been fought and changes in society as a result of war. Brave officers voluntarily tested the effects of mustard agent and other chemical weapons on protective clothing and gas masks. Local women sewed gas masks for troops and civilians. Women moved into key jobs on base during World War II, manufacturing and maintaining tanks and weapons systems as the need for great numbers of troops depleted the workforce of civilian males. APG scientists led the way into the computer age when they developed ENIAC, the first electronic digital computer.

21st Century Complete Guide to the U.S. Army Aberdeen Proving Ground and Aberdeen Test Center in Maryland (CD-ROM)
21st Century Complete Guide to the U.S. Army Aberdeen Proving Ground and Aberdeen Test Center in Maryland (CD-ROM)
This CD-ROM provides the story of the Aberdeen Proving Ground, the Army's oldest active proving ground. It was established on October 20, 1917, six months after the United States entered World War I, to provide the military a facility where design and testing of ordnance materiel could be carried out in close proximity to the nation's industrial and shipping centers. The post officially opened on December 14, 1917, and the first gun was fired on January 2, 1918. Aberdeen Proving Ground occupies more than 72,500 acres in Harford County, Md. Its northernmost point is marked by the confluence of the Susquehanna River and the Chesapeake Bay. On the south it is bordered by the Gunpowder River. The installation comprises two principal areas, separated by the Bush River. The northern area is known as the Aberdeen Area, and the southern sector, formerly Edgewood Arsenal (established in November, 1917 - as a chemical weapons research, development and testing facility), is the Edgewood Area. The two areas were administratively combined in 1971. APG property not attached to the main installation includes the Churchville Test Site in Harford County and Carroll Island and Graces Quarters in Baltimore County. Aberdeen Proving Ground is home to more than 50 tenants and a host of satellite activities. Among the major tenants are the U.S. Army Soldier, Biological and Chemical Command (APG's parent command), U.S. Army Ordnance Center and School, U.S. Army Developmental Test Command, U.S. Army Aberdeen Test Center, U.S. Army Center for Health Promotion and Preventive Medicine, Northeast Region Civilian Personnel Operations Center, U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Chemical Defense, Program Manager for Chemical Demilitarization, 203rd Technical Intelligence Unit, and major elements of the Army Research Laboratory As a center for Army materiel testing, laboratory research and military training, the post is a key element in the nation's defense. All tanks and wheeled vehicles which have served U.S. forces for the past 50 years have been tested for performance and durability at APG - from the M4 Sherman tank of World War II to the M1 tank and High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle of today. In all, this CD-ROM has over 3,000 pages reproduced using Adobe Acrobat PDF software - allowing direct viewing on Windows and Apple Macintosh systems. Reader software is included on the CD. There is no other reference that is as fast, convenient, comprehensive, and portable.

Essential Guide to the Joint Land Attack Cruise Missile Defense Elevated Netted Sensor System (JLENS) Tethered Aerostat System - Blimp Detached from Mooring at Aberdeen Proving Grounds October 2015
Essential Guide to the Joint Land Attack Cruise Missile Defense Elevated Netted Sensor System (JLENS) Tethered Aerostat System - Blimp Detached from Mooring at Aberdeen Proving Grounds October 2015
This is a print replica reproduction of a group of 23 military documents about the Joint Land Attack Cruise Missile Defense Elevated Netted Sensor System (JLENS) Tethered Aerostat System. The system was in the news on October 28, 2015 when the JLENS Surveillance System aerostat detached from its mooring station at Aberdeen Proving Grounds, Maryland. The aerostat ascended from 6,600 feet to 16,000 feet prior to deflating. Two F-16 Fighter jets from Atlantic City Air National Guard Base monitored the JLENS Surveillance System aerostat as it drifted northward over Pennsylvania. It landed in a rugged, wooded area in northeast Pennsylvania. JLENS is part of a three year NORAD exercise. A JLENS system consists of two aerostats: a fire control radar system and a surveillance radar system. Each radar system employs a separate 74-meter (243 feet long) tethered aerostat, a mobile mooring station, radar and communications payloads, a processing station, and associated ground support equipment.JLENS is a supporting program of the Army and Joint Integrated Air and Missile Defense, providing persistent, over-the-horizon radar surveillance and fire control quality data on Army and Joint Networks. It enables protection from a wide variety of threats to include manned and unmanned aircraft, cruise missiles, and surface moving targets like swarming boats and tanks. A JLENS system consists of two aerostats: a fire control radar system and a wide-area surveillance radar system. Each radar system employs a separate 74-meter (243 feet long) tethered aerostat, a mobile mooring station, radar and communications payloads, a processing station, and associated ground support equipment. The JLENS aerostat will fly at an altitude of up to 10,000 feet above sea level.JLENS uses advanced sensor and networking technologies to provide persistent, 360-degree, wide-area surveillance and precision tracking of Land Attack Cruise Missiles and other types of Air Breathing Threats. This information is distributed via joint service networks and provides fire control quality data to Surface-to-Air missile systems such as Army Patriot and Navy Aegis, increasing the weapons' capabilities by allowing systems to engage targets normally below, outside, or beyond surface-based weapons' field of view. JLENS also provides fire control quality data to fighter aircraft allowing them to engage hostile threats from extended ranges, and contributes to the development of a single integrated air picture. A JLENS orbit consists of two systems: a fire control radar system and a wide-area surveillance radar system. Each radar system employs a separate 74-meter tethered aerostat, mobile mooring station, radar and communications payload, processing station, and associated ground support equipment. The systems are designed to work together, but can operate independently. The JLENS orbit is transportable by road, rail, sea, and air.Using these aerostats moored at Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland, we will take the radar data these platforms provide and integrate it into our NCR air defenses, as well as the larger NORAD air defense architecture. Assessing JLENS’ capability to enhance our surveillance capabilities is important to determine the best way forward to protect against a potential cruise missile threat from near-peer adversaries. We appreciate the support of Congress for full funding of the JLENS FY16 President’s Budget request to keep the operational exercise on track and on schedule.



Ordnance Corps Aberdeen Proving Ground Challenge Coin
Ordnance Corps Aberdeen Proving Ground Challenge Coin
Prior to forming the Continental Army on June 14, 1775, the Second Continental Congress appointed a committee to study methods of ammunition procurement and storage and to appoint a "Commissary-General" of the Artillery Stores. Subsequently, in 1776 the Board of War and Ordnance was created for issuing supplies to troops in the field. This special Ordnance Corps challenge coin commemorates that beginning and the sterling performance of the Corps through every conflict from then until now.The contemporary mission of the United States Army Ordnance Corps is all-encompassing: to support the development, production, acquisition and sustainment of weapons systems and munitions; to provide explosive ordnance disposal; and during peace and war to provide superior combat power to current and future forces of the United States Army.The United States Army Ordnance Corps coin displays the bold regimental insignia, two crossed antique cannons on a white disc behind an encircling scroll in the form of a buckle red belt which bears the inscription "ORDNANCE CORPS U.S.A." in gold letters. Between the intersecting cannons and the belt is a black antique bomb, its scarlet flames issuing from the top. The reverse of the coin is also highlighted in rich enamels, featuring the Great Seal, and the circumference wording "UNITED STATES ARMY."
