Trent Lott Combat Readiness Training Center Harrison County (MS)


Contents

General Information

The Combat Readiness Training Center (CRTC) hosts deployments of Air National Guard units, and offers convenient offshore airspace that is fully instrumented (ACMI) for recording air to air engagements. Nearby Camp Shelby features an air to ground range and sufficient low altitude MOA airspace to provide realistic ground attack scenarios.

All Airspace and ranges/drop zones are instrumented on the twenty-six million dollar Air Combat Training System (ACTS). This system provides advanced, realistic training and debriefing capability and combines sophisticated electronic threat and scoring systems as well

The CRTC takes up 220 acres on the eastern edge of Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport. In addition to the Combat Readiness Training Center, the complex is also home to the 255th Air Control Squadron, 209th Civil Engineering Squadron, the Army National Guard’s 1108th helicopter maintenance depot and a U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency drug interdiction unit.
