Abstract:

The purpose of the Nevada Training Initiative NTI is to fulfill the Air Force need to train aircrews and Security Forces in a modern urban environment at NTTR. NTI would implement two separate proposed actions. Proposed Action One would establish and operate a set of integrated, realistic targets and assets defined as the HTTC as well as associated facilities and infrastructure for U.S. and Allied aircrew training against urban targets. The HTTC and associated facilities would simulate an urban environment for aircrew training. The Air Force identified three alternatives for Proposed Action One two action alternatives and the no-action alternative. Alternative 1A would locate the HTTC on Range 64 South Range of NTTR. Alternative 1B would place the HTTC on Range 62 South Range of NTTR. Each action alternative would meet the operational requirements and need for aircrew training in an urban environment. Alternative 1C, as required under CEQ regulations 40 CFR 1502.14 d, is the no-action alternative where the HTTC and associated facilities and infrastructure would not be developed. Distinct from Proposed Action One, Proposed Action Two would construct and operate a MOUT groundtraining area and associated facilities and infrastructure for the Air Force Security Forces Security Forces at Range 63A. This facility would realistically simulate an airbase environment. Proposed Action Two also has three alternatives- two action alternatives 2A and 2B and the no-action alternative 2C. The MOUT training facility would be at the same location under both action alternatives it would be constructed at the existing Security Forces training area on Range 63A within NTTR. The locations of associated facilities i.e., academic, lodging, dining, and kennel facilities differentiate Alternatives 2A and 2B. Under Alternative 2A, these associated facilities would be constructed at Indian Springs Air Force Auxiliary Field ISAFAF.
