What is the MRTFB?

The Major  Range and Test Facility Base (MRTFB) is a designated set of DoD installations, ranges and facilities regarded as "national assets" for their Test and Evaluation (T&E) missions.  These ranges and test centers, spread across the country in more than 20 locations, are critical components for maintaining our military's technological advantage.
