The Airborne Laser Advanced Concepts Testbed (ABL ACT) is a low power beam control test facility located at the northern end of White Sands Missile Range atop North Oscura Peak. The purpose of ABL ACT is to explore concepts for laser propagation under high scintillation conditions. This paper gives an updated overview ofthe facility, reviews data collected to date, and details future plans
