Abstract:

The objective of the Rapid Runway Repair RRR Program is to provide the US Air Force the capability to recover from conventional weapons attacks on USAF runways and airfields, thereby permitting expeditious launch and recovery of operational aircraft. The RRR Program conceives, develops, tests, and validates methods, materials, and equipment to rapidly repair airfield pavements following an enemy attack and designs of alternate launch and recovery surfaces. This program is not expected to produce a single, unique solution, but rather several validated concepts and solutions which can be used in combination to significantly improve USAF readiness posture. The scope of this program is limited to developments, testing, and fielding of civil engineering techniques to repair paved surfaces, to improve unpaved surfaces, and to create required support allow aircraft operations from the surfaces in spite of threat attacks. Modification to aircraft will not be attempted even though such modifications may turn out to be more effective that extensive engineering of airfield surfaces. Class II aircraft modification will only be accomplished to support instrumentation sensing devices.
