 RTI

In cooperation with the National Guard Bureau, the West Virginia National Guard is currently undergoing construction to expand the RTI Conference Center.  The expansion will support training requirements of the WV RTI, the Joint Interagency Training and Education Center / Homeland Defense, as well as operational support to the National Guard Bureau as a whole.  The expansion includes increasing our billeting capability to nearly 600 beds, classrooms, State-of-the-Art Operations Center, and many enhanced training facilities.

Live Fire Shoot House
A Live Fire Shoot House project is underway on the Volkstone Training Area.  Phase one, which is complete, consisted of the construction of the shoothouse with 7.62mm caliber absorbing walls.  Phase 2, currently underway, will include an AAR Briefing Room, latrines, and a communication hub connecting to Camp Dawson.

Modified Record Fire (MRF) Range
This fully automated and event specific target scenario range is computer driven and scored from the range operations center.  The incorporation of this U.S. Army Standard M16/M4 range has the potential to train up to 192 soldiers a day.  The estimated completion date for the MRF Range is now available for use with construction to some additional support facilities still underway.


Access Control Point
Located at the main entry gate to Camp Dawson, this project comes complete with a new Guard building, additional Force Protection, a covered awning, pop-up barriers, and vehicle inspection lanes.  Our new gate will feature new, biometrics technology.
