In a typical theater of operations TO approximately one-third of the engineers are planned for construction and construction support missions. These operations are known as base development BD. JCS defines BD as the improvement or expansion of the resources and facilities of an area or a location to support military operations. Thus, BD involves all of the actions required to define and carry out improvements to facilities in a TO. This paper is assigned to give an overview of BD planning and its related processes and responsibilities.
