The report documents a study designed to determine which Navy facilities and functions appear to be best suited for subsurface deployment in light of anticipated improvements in excavation capability within the next twenty years. Five categories of Naval facilities are analyzed and evaluated with respect to the benefits to be realized and the costs associated with their underground siting. Geological and hydrological considerations which may impact on the cost of any given excavation project are also outlined.
