About Denel Overberg Test Range 

Denel Overberg Test Range is a versatile missile and aircraft test range specialising in in-flight systems performance measurements for the local and international aerospace industries. As a key player in the South African defence industry, the Test Range has by now also firmly established itself as a cost-effective test venue for international clients. Its suitability and convenience for a wide range of weapon system evaluations has been confirmed during various test campaigns conducted for local clients and international clients from Europe to the Far East. The Test Range prides itself on being able to provide a turnkey service to its clients throughout the year. In this way it not only plays a significant role in enabling the responsible testing of defence equipment, but also contributes to South Africa's foreign exchange earnings.

The Test Ranges holding company, Denel SOC Ltd is one of the largest manufacturers of defence equipment in South Africa and operates in the military aerospace and landward defence environment. Incorporated as a private company in 1992 in terms of the South African Companies Act (No 62 of 1973), Denel's sole shareholder is the South African Government. Operating as a commercial enterprise all Denel Overberg Test Range's revenue is earned from work performed for its domestic and international clients.
