The center of U.S. Army missile and helicopter programs!


Over the past half-century, Huntsville, Ala., has become synonymous with space and missile technology. Since 1941 the nerve center of this U.S. Army program has been the Redstone Arsenal. The U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Command is headquartered at Redstone, with a mission covering every phase of fielding missile and rocket weapons systems.



Redstone is on the southwestern side of Huntsville, a growing community of 166,000 in the north-central part of the state. An engineering marvel, the total government property investment in the area is more than $1 billion, including similar facilities at the NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center. New residents are greeted through a newcomer's orientation and supported by the Family Advocacy Program and the Quality of Life office, ensuring a smooth transition into the community.
