Abstract:

The U.S. Air Force. Headquarters Air Combat Command ACC proposes to construct a Military Operations in Urban Terrain MOUT Training Complex at the Nevada Test and Training Range NTTR, Nevada. This action would establish a modern simulated urban airbase environment for Air Force Security Forces ground training. Components of the MOUT Training Complex would include a simulated airbase, academic, lodging, dining, and kennel facilities along with upgrades of existing facilities. The MOUT would encompass approximately 97 acres, with construction phased over a 5-year period. Training levels would not change from those currently conducted. Three alternatives to the proposed action were considered in the analysis two action alternatives and the no action alternative. Both action alternatives arc located in the South Range of NTTR and propose placing the MOUT Training Complex on Range 63A, with variances in the location of the associated training facilities. Alternative 2A would involve constructing the MOUT, including a partial simulated runway, and upgrading existing facilities at the current Range 63A training site. The existing operations and maintenance facility, munitions storage igloo, logistics warehouse and parking lot at Indian Springs Air Force Auxiliary Field ISAFAF would be upgraded. In addition, new academic, lodging, dining, and military working dog kennel facilities would be constructed at ISAFAF. Under Alternative 2B, construction of the MOUT at the current training site and upgrading of existing facilities at ISAFAF would be the same as in Alternative 2A. However construction of the new academic, lodging, dining, and military working dog kennel facilities would occur on AF owned lands across 1 95, south of ISAFAF. Under Alternative 2C, the no-action alternative, no new training, no changes to existing facilities and no construction would occur.
