The developed portion of the installation is 125 acres, whereas NBAFS occupies 2,826 acres. The NBAFS population consist of approximately 270 people however, total military personnel can increase to over 500 during military training. In order to provide additional interfaces with the Air Force Satellite Control Facility AFSCF, two antennas one 7 meter and one 10 meter will be installed at NBAFS. To accomplish this task, modification of habitats and existing structures will occur near building 100 on the northeastern side of the installation. Habitats in this area consist of disturbed grassy areas in a courtyard. Soils are of fine sandy loam and overlay bedrock. No unique or unusual hydrological or geological features occur in this area. The area is located on the upper slope of an 800-foot ft hill with exposed bedrock near the surface. Drainage is to the southwest of NBAFS.
