Edwards Air Force Base AFB is part of Air Force Materiel Command AFMC and supports the mission of the United States Air Force USAF or Air Force to protect the United States in its global interests through the use of superior defense systems in air, space, and cyberspace. Edwards AFB is home to the 412th Test Wing 412 TW, the USAF Test Pilot School, the Air Force Research Laboratory AFRL, and National Aeronautics and Space Administration NASA Armstrong Flight Research Center. Almost every United States military aircraft since the 1950s has been at least partially tested at Edwards AFB, and it has been the site of many aviation breakthroughs. Edwards AFB currently operates as the integral unit for the testing and evaluation of military aircraft. Edwards AFB uses the R-2515 Restricted Airspace and the larger R-2508 Complex for these purposes.
