About Aberdeen Proving Grounds
APG history as a military facility dates to December 1917 when the area was established as the Ordnance Proving Ground for testing tanks, ordnance items and other military equipment. It became a permanent military post, designated as APG, in January 1919. Testing of ammunition began in 1918, and the ordnance officer training began in 1919. Prior to World War II, activities at APG were characterized by intense research and development and large scale testing of a wide variety of munitions, weapons, and materials. From 1939 to 1942, the Army acquired additional acreage for automotive testing. Spesutie Island was added in 1945.
