Historical information

United Nations Space Command


The Avery J. Johnson Academy of Military Science (abbreviated AJJ or AJAMS)[1][3] is a military academy hidden on a classified frontier world where members of the Spartan Operations train. It is posthumously named after the Insurrection and Human-Covenant War veteran Avery Johnson, a member of the SPARTAN-I program, who was killed in action during the Raid on Installation 08 in late 2552.[4][1] During the Created conflict, it served as a rally point and staging area for surviving Spartans and other UNSC forces who escaped destruction at the hands of the Created. Keeping the facility's location a secret was considered important enough to revive Cole Protocol safeguards.[2]



As part of the Spartan Training and Qualification Program, the academy has an outdoor training area at the base of mountains.[5] This training area allows for live fire practice. Part of this training area includes Buildings 5, 7, 8 and 9 as well as Tower 187.[4] The main building has an AI calibration lab, where Spartans can access their Personal AIs, and it is adjacent to the Movement Yard, where Spartans can practice their movement skills in an obstacle course. There is also an armory and a firing range, where personnel can run weapon drills.[6]

There are landing pads at the academy that can allow Pelicans to land.[5]

Many walls throughout the campus are adorned with various logos and insignias, including one that features a Mark V (B) helmet with the name of the academy surrounding it in a circle.[5]


The academy features the Spartan Training and Qualification Program.[5]





Created conflict[edit]

The academy was operating and training forces even in the midst of the Created occupation of parts of the galaxy in either late 2559 or early 2560.[1] It is likely run - in some part - by the Spartan Training and Education department.


The Avery J. Johnson Academy of Military Science acts as the setting and framing device for the tutorial and matchmaking practice of the Halo Infinite multiplayer. It is also the setting for the map Live Fire in the game as well.[5] The Forge canvas map Institute is set in the valley clearing adjacent to the academy.[9]
