Abstract:

The 79 RQS in association with the 48 RQS and 55 RQS will conduct various training maneuvers to improve the ability of personnel to engage in CSAR during actual combat conditions. Maneuvers would include parachute drops of personnel and equipment, helicopter discharge and recovery of personnel, firing range practice,and use of All Terrain Vehicles ATVs to simulate rescue of personnel behind enemy combat lines. Approximately two maneuvers per week involving up to six personnel would go forward. The 79 RQS designated a preferred alternative site and two additional sites for the same project as meeting the above specifications, identified as Alternatives A and B, for consideration. IfDMAFB is not utilized, the same activities would be conducted at the US Armys installation, Ft Huachuca AZ and on nearby lands in that area managed by the US Department of the Interiors Bureau of Land Management BLM.
