“The NTTR is an asset of the United States of America, all Department of Defense agencies, national security agencies including other governmental agencies and our allied partners,” said VanHerck. “We routinely bring partners to the NTTR to train just as if we were going to go into combat with them, and that is a crucial capability for us. All this success comes at a price as our ability to meet warfighter requirements has exceeded our capacity. We continue to look for innovative ways to address these issues, but the reality is it will likely get worse before it gets better as 5th generation aircraft stretch the capabilities of our range.”
