Land Ranges are cleared and essentially level with some low rolling hills. The surrounding area features heavy vegetation, with numerous swamps, lakes, and streams. Air Force-owned beachfront property provides a unique land/sea interface with contrasting background/clutter environment especially useful for munition seeker testing. The soil is very uniform, high moisture, less lossy, sand.

The test complex is unique due to the concentration of many individual test areas encompassing a variety of environments (i.e., jungle, rolling hills, cleared flat areas, water areas, etc.) used for a variety of tests.

Range hazards include UXO (primarily training hardware), snakes, scorpions, burrows, and lightning.
