About the Yuma Proving Ground

U.S. Army Yuma Proving Ground (USAYPG) is a general-purpose desert environmental test facility. The YPG is located 26 miles north of Yuma, Arizona on U.S. Hwy 95 near the California-Arizona border. This installation covers nearly 1,400 square miles and offers climate and terrain similar to major desert areas worldwide. YPG is primarily involved in developmental and operational test of artillery weapons and ammunition, aircraft armament systems, mobility equipment, and air delivery systems.

The Headquarters Support Troop (HST) is the only unit on YPG that is actually assigned to the installation. All other units are only attached for duty here. HST has approximately 150 personnel assigned and they work in numerous duty sections throughout the installation. The U.S. Army Health Clinic is a tenant organization, and its personnel are assigned to the Weed Army Community Hospital at Ft. Irwin in California.

Yuma Proving Ground (YPG) is located adjacent to the Colorado River in the Sonora Desert of Southwest Arizona, one of the hottest and driest areas in the nation. Larger in size than the state of Rhode Island, YPG encompasses more than 1,300 square miles. It is approximately 180 miles east of San Diego, California, and approximately 185 miles southwest of Phoenix, Arizona.

Yuma Proving Ground has an annual average of 350 sunny days, the air is sparkling clear and the average rainfall amounts to about three inches. This, plus the proving ground's excellent test facilities and staff of engineers, scientists and technicians, combine to offer outstanding opportunities to test a large variety of systems, materiel and equipment. An average of 100 tests are ongoing at any given time.
