The purpose of the proposed action is to permanently consolidate the AFC2ISRC and its divisions in a single facility on Langley AFB. The proposal would allow the Air Force to improve efficiency and cohesion of the functional groups, provide the synergy between functions that housing all divisions in one facility would provide, increase security with an on-base location, facilitate the command and control of intelligence, and ensure that information sent to battlefield commanders is accurate and in near real-time. The AFC2ISRC and its divisions currently operate from five geographically separated facilities on and off Langley AFB. In 2005, competing demands for office space on Langley AFB will force a move of approximately 800 more AFC2ISRC personnel to off-base leased offices in Hampton Virginia. Under the proposed action, the Air Force would construct a new facility having a ground footprint of 82,000 square feet 183,000 square feet of interior space and an approximate 700-vehicle parking lot in the north central portion of Langley AFB. The Air Force analyzed three potential location alternatives for construction of the AFC2ISRC facility. Construction would begin in 2008 and last approximately 30 months. In addition to the proposed action, the Air Force analyzed the no-action alternative. Under the no-action alternative, the Air Force would not construct a new facility to consolidate the AFC2ISRC and its AFTC, C2BL, and AFEO divisions on Langley AFB at this time.
