NTS owns and operates the National Ordnance and Ballistic Test Center in Camden, Arkansas. Established within the original 68,000-acre Shumaker Naval Ammunition Depot and a portion of Highland Industrial Park, the complex is equipped to safely conduct a wide array of severe and dangerous tests on weapon systems, ordnance, rocket motors, hazardous materials and commercial products. NTS Camden is one of the most complete ordnance test facilities in the country and was developed to satisfy the weapons industry’s manufacturing and testing needs well into the future.
The multidisciplinary test facility offers safe, cost-effective, and error-free testing of ordnance, munitions, and hazardous materials including climatic and dynamics testing, functional trials, and live firings. The Center features a 3,000-meter firing range, a rocket range, multiple warhead arena test areas, multiple indoor and outdoor medium caliber test ranges, a drop tower facility, a large dynamics test facility, and numerous large concrete storage magazines for ordnance. The Center also has over 35,000 square feet of enclosed computer-controlled environmental conditioning buildings. NTS performs vibration testing up to 40,000 force pounds on hazardous test items, such as warheads. Hazardous material shakers are capable of functioning at temperatures of -150° to 300°F. Dedicated buildings housing the vibration systems are suited for 1,000 pounds of Class 1.1 explosives and are separated by appropriate distances to limit potential damage.
