Located on the RELLIS campus, the project will include the construction of a $50 million facility housing labs, offices, and accelerator space to support combat development and testing operations. A $50 million outdoor proving ground will allow the Army to collaborate with the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station on the analysis and validation of new technologies including autonomous weapons, lasers, and hypersonic missiles.
