Abstract:

In April 2008, Integrated Systems Analysts, Inc. ISA was tasked to participate in a joint study, The Guam Joint Military Master Plan to evaluate the feasibility of harmonizing explosives operations on the island of Guam. The focus of the study was to consolidate explosives storage and operations from the Army, Air Force, Navy and Marines at Andersen AFB and Navy Base, Guam. Background ISAs objectives were to merge proposed explosives storage and operating facilities from each Service, maximize the Net Explosives Weight NEW, maximize logistical flow, and meet the minimum square footage requirements for joint operations at each installation. The individual Services needed the ability to work independently of each other with no additional risks from other explosives storage or operations. Airfield parking spots were identified at Andersen AFB for H-60 Helicopters, P-3P8, and MV-22 aircraft. These parking spots meet the minimum NEW requirements and quantitydistances for joint airfield operations.
