Abstract:

The need to train as we fight is fundamental to our armed forces. Ranges are some of the Department of Defense s DoD s most valued assets because they closely resemble the operational environments of assigned military missions around the globe. Installations are also critical for maintaining military readiness and mission effectiveness by serving as extensions of the ranges for support activities. As a result of their value to U.S. armed forces, ranges and installations must be available when and where needed, and have the capabilities necessary to support current and future military mission requirements. Creating and sustaining a network of ranges requires a management framework that effectively addresses mission requirements, environment and natural resource management, and local community interests.
