Paper Abstract

The Utah Test and Training Range (UTTR) is a DoD test range in western Utah that contains 2,600 square miles of DoD withdrawn land and 17,000 square miles of usable airspace. The Range is managed by the 650 1st Range Squadron at Hill Air Force Base, Utah. The squadron's Range Operations Branch, located at Dugway Proving Grounds, Utah, provides photo-optic time-space position information (TSPI) on unmanned air vehicles, low flying missiles, on-board ordnance delivery systems, and other air targets using cine/videotheodolites. The Branch also provides videometric analysis recording, long-duration high-speed film recording, multiple camera coverage of explosive propagation tests, and video documentation services. The Range's capabilities are being used to support the Cruise Missile programs (ALCM/ACM), Tactical Weapons System Evaluation Program (TAC-WSEP), air and ground launched Medium Range Unmanned Air Vehicles, rocket motor and munitions shelf life testing, and explosive hazard classification studies. The purpose of this paper is to describe, in general terms, some of the imaging equipment and techniques used on the UTTR.
