Abstract:

The USAF at Nellis AFB, Nevada proposes to upgrade targets on Leach Lake Tactical Range to enhance realistic training for air liaison officers, forward air controllers-airborne, tactical air control parties, special tactics team members, and selected Army, Navy, and Marine Corps members. The realistic training includes tactics, techniques, and procedures in planning, requesting, coordinating, and controlling close air support at the tactical level. The Proposed Action will include reconfiguring andor rebuilding current targets, building new targets, constructing a 500-foot fence on each side of the existing Owl Springs fence and gate, and installing installation boundary signs and range warning signs to improve range security and public safety.
