Air Force to Add Fourth Advanced Tech & Training Center in Utah

Jeff Brody

The U.S. Air Force is slated to open its fourth Advanced Technology and Training Center along the Wasatch mountain range near Hill AF base in Utah. The service branch said Thursday that ATTC-Wasatch will house training and qualification activities for new technologies “without interrupting actual aircraft maintenance production.”

Operations at the facility may involve reverse engineering and scanning, cold spray repair, modeling and analysis, composites repair and additive manufacturing of polymers and metals. According to the Air Force, ATTC-Wasatch will work to develop rapid technology qualification capabilities while providing opportunities to Utah’s government, industry and academic entities.

The Air Force’s other ATTCs are located in Dayton near Wright Patterson AFB in Ohio, Middle Georgia near Robins AFB and Pittsburgh, Pa. The service expects to open the fourth ATTC in early 2020.
