Redstone is the heart of the Army’s rocket and missile programs. It was at Redstone Arsenal that Dr. Wernher von Braun and other German rocket experts developed the first ballistic missile, leading to the establishment of NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in 1960. 
 
On July 17, 1997, the former Army Missile Command combined with the aviation portion of the U.S. Army Aviation and Troop Command (ATCOM), creating a new organization at Redstone Arsenal, the United States Army Aviation and Missile Command (AMCOM).
 
Redstone Arsenal remains the center of testing, development and doctrine for the Army’s missile programs, as well as continuing to host the Marshall Space Flight Center, NASA’s field center for propulsion analysis and development, which developed the Saturn rocket family in the 1960s and propulsion systems for the Space Shuttle in the 1970s and 1980s.  In addition to the U.S. Army Materiel Command and the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Life Cycle Management Command, Redstone houses the Tactical UAV Project Office, Redstone Test Center (RTC), the Missile Defense Agency, the Missile and Space Intelligence Center, and other operations.
