WHO WE ARE
The U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command Aviation & Missile Center, headquartered at Redstone Arsenal, Alabama, is the Army’s focal point for providing research, development and engineering technology and services for aviation and missile platforms across the life cycle.
The CCDC AvMC has a long history of providing unparalleled service to its aviation and missile customers, while always striving to provide the greatest service to its ultimate customer – the Soldier – by providing technology and weapon system solutions to ensure his/her victory on the battlefield.
The CCDC AvMC traces its origins back to October 1948, when the chief of ordnance designated Redstone Arsenal as the center for research and development in the field of rockets. In 1962, the U.S. Army Missile Command, including the Directorate of Research and Development, was activated and has since been re-designated multiple times.
