The Pacific Missile Range Facility (PMRF) is a Pacific Training Range that is uniquely capable of also supporting RDT&E programs. We are a fifth echelon command reporting to the Commander in Chief, Pacific Fleet via the Command, Naval Air Pacific and Command, Patrol Wings Pacific.
PMRF is a fleet range which provides instrumental range support (radar, underwater tracking telemetry, electronic warfare, target command control, communications, launching facilities, data display, data processing and target/weapon launching and recovery facilities) to the fleet and all Department of Defense agencies, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the Department of Energy (DOE), Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA), and authorized contractor development programs. It is a total environment range with capabilities of providing real time and post operational data on underwater, surface, air and space vehicle (ballistic missiles and satellites) and scientific atmospheric rocker probes (DOE and meteorology).
Precision tracking, real time display and data recording of ships, aircraft and missiles are provided by eight long-range, high-accuracy digitized radars. The Barking Sands Underwater Tracking Systems consist of a 1,000-square-mile, high accuracy three dimensional system. The underwater range provide for real time three dimensional track of submarines and underwater weapons and targets.
