Map of White Sands Test Center


White Sands Missile Range covers about 3,200 square miles of south central New Mexico. The callup areas are lands either privately owned or controlled by state and federal agencies. White Sands has contracts with ranchers in these areas which allow the range to evacuate the residents for up to 12 hours a few times a year for some tests. The ranchers are paid a yearly payment and travel expenses each time they evacuate. When utilized the call-up areas add about 2,500 square miles for the range's temporary use. It is approximately 115 miles from Stallion Gate to the Main Post.
