The U.S. Army's Dugway Proving Ground (DPG) is a multipurpose Major Range and Test Facility with a full range of capabilities for testing the performance of chemical and biological (CB) materiel. Located 80 miles southwest of Salt Lake City, Utah, Dugway encompasses 840,000 acres of land free from encroachment. DPG supports all branches of the DoD and shares the surrounding restricted airspace with the AF's Utah Test and Training Range. A recently completed $300 million modernization program has made Dugway an efficient technical facility.


DPG is the DoD's principal proving ground for chemical and biological defense materiel, protective items and soldier compatibility with protective clothing/equipment. In addition to this primary mission, Dugway has been designated a center of excellence for military smoke/obscurant and illumination systems testing and performs artillery, mortar, mines and a wide variety of special purpose equipment testing and evaluation. While DPG primarily performs field and laboratory developmental tests, another major responsibility is the Joint Chemical/Biological Contact Point and Test Project, which was assigned directly by the Department of Defense and the Joint Chiefs of Staff. In connection with this task, DPG serves as the central source for information on chemical and biological materiel issues for all commanders-in-chief and services.
