The Space Development and Test Wing (SDTW) was a unit of Air Force Space Command's Space and Missile Systems Center of the United States Air Force. The wing is located at Kirtland Air Force Base in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

The unit was combined with another Space and Missile Systems Center directorate and is now known as the Advanced Systems and Development Directorate.[1]


The Space Development and Test Directorate develops, tests and evaluates Air Force space systems, executes advanced space development and demonstration projects, and rapidly transitions capabilities to the warfighter.[2]


The Space Development and Test Wing was activated 1 August 2006. Prior to that, Detachment 12 of the Space and Missile Systems Center had been activated at Kirtland AFB 29 June 2001, taking responsibility for research, developmental test and evaluation organizations that had been co-located at Kirtland AFB alongside the Air Force Research Laboratory Space Vehicles and Directed Energy Directorates.[3]
