Location of White Sands

White Sands Missile Range occupies an area 160 x 65 km in the Tularosa Basin of southern New Mexico, across the Sacramento Mountain range from Roswell. In the 1930's, Robert Goddard, after surveying weather conditions and population densities, had selected Roswell for his pioneering rocket tests. White Sands, a true desert area, was even more unpopulated than Roswell. German advances in rocketry during World War II impelled the US Army to begin programs to exploit this technology. The White Sands Proving Ground was established for testing German and American long-range rockets on 9 July 1945. Seven days later the first atomic bomb was exploded at Trinity Site, near the north boundary of the range. The first launch of a Tiny Tim rocket was on 26 September 1945. On 11 October a Tiny Tim boosted a WAC Corporal rocket from the tower. This was the first use of Launch Complex 33, later to be used for V-2, Nike, Viking, Corporal, Lance and Multiple Launch Rocket System testing.

The technology developed so quickly that within ten years test of longer-range rockets was moved to coastal sites at Cape Canaveral and Vandenberg. However the substantial infrastructure developed at White Sands continued in use for test of shorter range missiles and sounding rockets. In 1960 White Sands began use of 'call up' areas on the north and west boundaries. Several times a year ranchers in these areas would be notified to evacuate them during longer-range tests.

Administratively the range also operated other missile launch sites in New Mexico, Utah and Idaho. Longer-range rockets were fired from these sites with intercept or impact points at White Sands.

White Sands was considered as a shuttle launch site in the early 1970's (altitude would have provided payload advantage). This did not come to pass, but Northrup Strip at White Sands was selected as a shuttle alternate landing site. The orbiter Columbia landed there on 30 March, 1982. The experience showed that White Sands' fine silicate dust posed a problem for shuttle operations. The strip was also used as the primary training site for shuttle pilots to practice approaches and mock landings in the shuttle trainer aircraft.

By the 1990's White Sands had more than 1,500 precisely surveyed instrumentation sites using 1,000 optical and electronic tracking and telemetry systems. A site-wide timing system synchronized these instruments. Other range services included calibration, communication, meteorological, photographic, television, aerial target support, and laboratory testing facilities (covering nuclear environments, weapon systems simulation, guidance and control, propulsion, climatic, microbiological, metallurgic).

Major range users included:

  • US Naval Air Warfare Center (NAWC), established in 1946. The LLS-1 USS Desert Ship is used to test naval surface weapon systems. The NAWC also provides sounding rocket support services for NASA, the Air Force Geophysics Laboratory, the Naval Research Laboratory, the Ballistic Missile Defense Organization and commercial customers. Their High Energy Laser Systems Test Facility also test naval high energy lasers such as MIRACL (Mid Infrared Advanced Chemical Laser) and the SEALITE Beam Director.

  • The Air Force conducts missile research and development program testing at White Sands. They also use the range for tactical flight training and exercises. The USAF also controls the range's restricted airspace.

  • The US Army Research Laboratory (ARL) originally provided radar support to the Signal Corps for V-2 tests in 1946. Since 1952 it also studies electronic countermeasures vulnerability of Army missiles and tests foreign missile systems at the site.

  • The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) uses White Sands for many test activities. During the Apollo program launch escape systems and the Apollo spacecraft's engines were tested there. Many shuttle components were tested as well.

White Sands Sounding was known to have been used for 6909 launches from 1945 to 2007. The actual numbers of launches, including missile tests, was several times greater.

Minimum Inclination: 32.0 degrees. Maximum Inclination: 90.0 degrees.

Location: White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico.

As many as 3,225 were launched in combat, primarily against Antwerp and London, and a further 1,000 to 1,750 were fired in tests and training. Despite the scale of this effort, the inaccurate missile did not change the course of the war and proved to be an enormous waste of resources. The British, Americans, and Russians launched a further 86 captured German V-2's in 1945-1952. Personnel and technology from the V-2 program formed the starting point for post-war rocketry development in America, Russia, and France. More...

Associated Launch Sites
  • White Sands LC38 Nike Zeus launch complex. LC 38 (Army Launch Area Five) was originally built in the 1960's for test of the Nike Zeus anti-ballistic missile. The Nike Zeus system required elaborate infrastructure to house the large missiles, and even larger assembly of radars, computers, and electronics. There were two R&D Zeus Launch Cells and later one tactical Launch Cell. In 1969 LC-38 was modified for test of the Patriot surface-to-air missile system, which eventually was developed to be capable against short-range ballistic missiles. The complex continued to be used for Patriot testing into the 21st Century. More...
  • White Sands LC33 Wac, Viking, V-2, Nike, Javelin, Hermes, Corporal, Atlas, Apache launch complex. LC 33 was the United States' first major rocket launch facility. The original Army Launch Area 1 complex consisted of a blockhouse, several concrete launching pads for captured German V-2 rockets, a 30-m tall launch tower for Aerobee rockets, a gantry and blast pit. More...
  • White Sands LC50 Sprint, HIBEX launch complex. West Center 50 was located in the central portion of the range near Rhodes Canyon. The facility included a hardened blockhouse to accommodate test of Sprint short-range anti-ballistic missiles without a destruct charge. The only missiles (with the possible exception of a HIBEX) that were ever launched from LC50 were Sprints (except for other small missile launched from there in later years). LC-50 was a mound built up in the desert with a ramp up to it coming from the south-southwest. The mound originally had three launch cells. One was destroyed by an explosion of FLA-3 in the cell. It was fenced and locked. More...
  • White Sands LC37 Squirt, HEDI launch complex. LC 37 (Army Launch Area Three) was the main test complex for the Nike Ajax and Nike Hercules surface-to-air missiles. Later additions were used for HIBEX and HEDI KITE launches, and as the Army's Advanced Gun Munitions Test Site. More...
  • White Sands SULF Storm launch complex. The SULF complex was located at the northwest end of the range and was equipped with a blockhouse, ordnance assembly building, three launchers, and a 30-m long environmental shelter. This complex was used to launch anti-ballistic missile targets (generally composed of surplus Minuteman ICBM motors) and to launch technology demonstrations or unique science and engineering payloads into sub-orbital trajectories. More...
  • White Sands LC32 Storm-2, Hera launch complex. Launch site for anti-ballistic missile targets. These are most often test vehicles composed of surplus Minuteman ICBM stages. More...
  • White Sands LC35 Standard-ER, Black Brant, Aerobee launch complex. Work on LC-35 was begun by the US Navy in 1946. Although no specific requirement had been identified, Captain Robert McLaughlin of the Bureau of Naval Ordnance realized the Navy would need an instrumented range to test the surface-to-air missiles planned for Navy ships. The first facilities built were a blockhouse and two launch towers for Aerobee sounding rockets. From 1947 a total of 675 Aerobees were launched from White Sands, most of these from LC-35. More...
  • White Sands LC36 Terrier, Redstone, Nike, Little Joe II, Honest John, Black Brant, Storm, Aries, Apollo LES launch complex. Originally designated Army Launch Area 2, LC36 was later a LC36 was a NASA facility that supported tests of the Apollo Launch Escape System. It was also used to launch NASA sounding rocket missions. The complex included a blockhouse, launch control equipment, and launchers with environmental shelters. These launchers included:
    • An 11-m rail with 3600 kg capacity
    • A 15-m rail with 11,000 kg capacity
    • A 50-m tower with 3600 kg capacity
    • A 1.2-m diameter stool with 23,000 kg capacity
    • A 9-m rail with 7000 kg capacity.
