Pan Pacific Defense Corps Proving Ground (or Jaeger Testing Facility[2]) is a military reservation located on Kodiak Island. It was used to field test and construct the first line of Jaegers during the Kaiju War.[1]


When Jasper Schoenfeld's Jaeger concept was approved and funded by the Pan Pacific Defense Corps, he and Caitlin Lightcap's operations were moved to Kodiak Island. There they were given a facility and reservation to test the first Mark-1 prototype, Brawler Yukon, in 2015.[1]

After an initial failure that resulted in the death of a test subject, Yukon was made a proven success when Dr. Lightcap successfully bridged her mind with the second test subject, proving the viability of the Jaeger Program. The first series of Mark-1 Jaegers, including Horizon Brave, were constructed on the island ready for future combat deployment against the Kaiju.[1]
