March 12, 1964, Building 5400 at Redstone Arsenal was officially dedicated as McMorrow Laboratories. From the Redstone Rocket to Future Vertical Lift, AMRDEC is celebrating 50 years of aviation and missile research, development and engineering excellence.
Flying a helicopter through rain, fog or cloudy conditions is challenging and dangerous, so a team of Army engineers are researching ways to make flying in degraded visual environments easier and safer for rotorcraft pilots.
Researchers from AMRDEC and the Army Research Laboratory received an R&D Award for their development of a new gel-propellant engine called the vortex engine.
During a 2013 visit to AMRDEC, GEN Dennis Via, Commander of the Army Materiel Command, stressed the critical role that research and development will play over the next ten years.
Deliver collaborative and innovative technical capabilities for responsive and cost-effective research, product development, and life cycle systems engineering solutions.
Be a Warfighter-focused valued team of world leaders in aviation and missile technologies and life cycle systems engineering.
