Located 10 miles northwest of Atlantic City, and covering over 5,000 acres, the Technical Center consists of state-of-the art laboratories, test facilities, support facilities, the Atlantic City International Airport (ACY), and a non-commercial aircraft hangar. The Technical Center is also home to the Department of Homeland Security, Transportation Security Lab, and the United States Coast Guard Group Air Station Atlantic City, as well as the New Jersey Air National Guard 177th Fighter Wing. While the Technical Center serves to advance aviation, it is a key focal point for Homeland Security as well.
