Who We Are

Innovators. Researchers. World-class scientists and engineers.

The smart people driving the discoveries and innovations that will be critical to realizing new capabilities for the Army of 2030 and beyond.

We are AvMC – the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command Aviation & Missile Center. The Army's focal point for providing research, development and engineering technology and services for aviation platforms and missile systems across the life cycle.

The AvMC team – approximately 12,000-strong – has remained at the forefront of Army technology. Our focus is on three key priorities:

  • PEOPLE: focus on taking care of our current workforce, as well as recruiting and developing the talent needed to build the Army of the future.
  • TRANSFORMATION & READINESS: continue to pursue S&T investments that provide the cutting-edge technologies needed for decision dominance and overmatch in the multi-domain Army of the future.
  • COLLABORATION: continue to provide world class functional and sustainment engineering expertise to our PEOs, MDA, RCCTO, AMCOM and other critical partners to ensure the Army maintains its warfighting advantage now and, in the future, as well as seek new partnerships to drive the innovation needed for the Army’s readiness, modernization and transformation efforts.

Headquartered at Redstone Arsenal, Alabama, our reach extends from coast to coast, with locations at Moffett Field, California; Colorado Springs, Colorado; Corpus Christi, Texas; Honolulu, Hawaii and Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Virginia.

"We are the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command Aviation & Missile Center.

We have a responsibility and a mission to ensure our Soldiers have the combat capabilities they need so that they can do what we ask them to as a nation and they can come home safely."

What We Do

Our ultimate responsibility is to the Warfighter.

We provide technology and weapon system solutions to ensure victory on the battlefield. Our mission is to develop, integrate, demonstrate, and sustain aviation and missile systems capabilities to support Army priorities and improve readiness.

What does that look like? Our capabilities include:

  • Engineering and subject matter expertise in all aspects of aircraft and weapon system design, development and improvement
  • Delegated Airworthiness Authority for the Army
  • Sustainment and Life Cycle Engineering Support
  • Hardware-In-the-Loop Models & Simulations for Aviation & Missile Systems
  • Software Fielding/New Equipment Training
  • Cyber and Protective Technology Development

AvMC is a part of the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command, a major subordinate command of the U.S. Army Futures Command.
