Arizona Laboratories for Security and Defense Research (AZLabs)

AZLabs can support a broad range of sensitive projects, including experiments, prototype evaluations, distributed test and training with access to a highly skilled DoD-focused workforce. Additionally, AZLabs is in close proximity to existing restricted airspace and Military Operation Areas, as well as three 10,000-plus foot runways, taxiways and parking apron.
