Much of the system is sensitive and cannot be specified, but its developers use the data generated from Dugway testing to develop algorithms for detecting people, vehicles and pack animals after they have passed over the ground, or the burying of munitions and improvised explosive devices beneath it.

S/K Challenge III Aug. 18, 2016 at U.S. Army Dugway Proving Ground, Utah. During the two week event, Dugway scientists and personnel released benign, simulated chemical and biological agents in chambers and the open air, so agencies, manufacturers and users could test their detectors. Dugway records its own referee data, but not those of the users. Dugway‘s data is provided to the users for comparison. Consequently, S/K Challenge is much cheaper than a conventional test, and the operators return with an excellent understanding of what works and what should be improved.
