Abstract:

This report was prepared to provide range commanders and range planners with a readily applied methodology for addressing land use planning and land use conflict problems arising from the use of various ordnance types on US Air Force tactical training and flight test ranges. The methodology described presents a means for using the products developed under the Range Compatibility Use Zone RACUZ Program. This methodology consists of a step-by-step procedure for applying range safety areal descriptors developed under a previous contract to a spectrum of range planning, operations, and training problems. The range safety areal descriptors discussed are contours about the target, oriented with respect to the direction of weapon delivery against the specified target with specified delivery tactics. The report has been designed to make usable the currently existing areal descriptors when used as reproduced transparent plastic overlays or traced on clear plastic, and to provide a framework for placing at the disposal of the users any future descriptors as they are developed and any modifications to the methodology.
