In response to your request, we have reviewed the Department of Defenses DoD Electronic Combat Consolidation Master Plan. As agreed with your office, our objective was to assess the costs and benefits of DoDs consolidation plans for open air ranges, hardware in the loop facilities, and installed system test facilities used in electronic combat testing. According to the Master Plan, DoD considered 17 of the services electronic combat test facilities for consolidation. The Army controls 4 of the 17 facilities, the Navy controls 6, and the Air Force controls 7. The conclusion of the Master Plan is that the assets of three of the seven facilities managed by the Air Force will be moved to other Air Force locations. No interservice consolidations and no intraservice consolidation of the four Army or six Navy facilities are proposed in the Plan.
