Abstract:

The purpose of the Proposed Action is to enable the Air Force to implement training initiatives that will improve, enhance, and provide simulated combat training for pilots using NTTR. In order to fully prepare pilots for real-world missions, combat conditions must be replicated to the greatest extent possible. UOC and UAV targets are designed to simulate realworld conflicts that are occurring in combat theaters of today. The need for the Proposed Action is to enhance the realism of the target training scenarios and train aircrews. The Proposed Action would consist of targets and assets that duplicate an urban environment for aircrews. These types of training capabilities would allow the Air Force to continue its practice of enhancing combat capabilities and survivability of military personnel.
