Training and testing are more important than ever

TRAINING AND TESTING ARE MORE IMPORTANT THAN EVER

  • Realistic training requires realistic training environments

  • The ability to field and use advanced military technology is fundamental to U.S. warfare

  • Our weapons and tactics require increasingly large battlespaces

  • Readiness is perishable – Skills must be maintained through regular training

  • OPTEMPO, PERSTEMPO are up; ready access to training is essential

  • Use (& Modification of) Terrain is central to land warfare

  • Live Fire is Fundamental to Training

We must train as we fight; because we fight as we train

THRU:


Munitions constituents and perchlorate

MUNITIONS CONSTITUENTS AND PERCHLORATE

  • Live Fire Is Essential to DoD Testing and Training

  • DoD Will Assess and Prevent Migration of Munitions Constituents off range

    • OSD Guidance and directives address range assessments and prevention of off-range migration

    • FY05 RRPI helps clarify applicability of environmental regulations to range activities

    • Range clearance and munitions use practices will be reviewed to promote long-term sustainment

  • DoD has a program to Clean Up Other than Operational Ranges

    • Recent DSB Report on UXO may influence some management aspects of the program

  • Perchlorate is a growing issue that must be proactively addressed by DoD.

Recommendation: A More Systematic DoD Approach to UXO

And Constituents Must Be a Key WIPT/OEESCM Focus Area in 2004


Compatible land use and buffers around ranges

COMPATIBLE LAND USE AND BUFFERS AROUND RANGES

  • Sections 2811 and 2812 (from FY03 NDAA) allow DOD to cooperate more effectively with private entities and state and local governments to preserve land near military installations for mission protection and conservation purposes

  • Services and DoD are establishing partnerships to develop buffers or otherwise promote compatible land uses

    • Army Compatible Use Buffers (ACUB)

    • DoN Encroachment Partnering Guidance

    • Florida Greenway Initiative

    • OEA Joint Land Use Study Planning Support to State and Local Governments

  • President’s 2005 Budget Proposal provides $20M to further range land protections and related sustainment initiatives

DoD and Service Buffering Efforts and Supporting

Policies Must Be Coordinated

Ranges are at risk

RANGES ARE AT RISK

Encroachment: Restrictions that inhibit accomplishment of our live training and testing as required

  • Force Readiness is fundamentally linked to the quality and frequency of test and training

  • The impact of encroachment Is broad -- affecting our ability to execute realistic air, ground, and naval training across the nation, as well as beyond its borders.

Areas of Encroachment

  • Endangered Species Act/ Critical Habitat

  • UXO & Munitions

  • Frequency Encroachment

  • Maritime Sustainability

  • National Airspace System

  • Air Quality

  • Airborne Noise

  • Urban Growth

1.      PURPOSE

This Directive establishes policy and assigns responsibilities for the

sustainment of test and training ranges in the Department of Defense

(DoD). This is intended as a capstone directive. Guidance on specific

topics within this Directive’s scope is provided in the above references.

  • Capstone Guidance on Planning and Management, Coordination and Outreach

  • New Policy Components

    • Range Sustainment Directive (Complete)

    • Outreach and Stakeholder Involvement Instruction

    • Community and Environmental Noise Directive

    • Air Installations Compatible Use Zones (AICUZ) Instruction [Compatible Land Use Planning]

    • Active Range Clearance Directive

    • Joint Land Use Study Instruction

Programs

PROGRAMS

DoD programmatic guidance outlines a comprehensive range sustainment program that will:

  • Modernize range facilities to sustain range operations by resourcing advanced instrumentation and other infrastructure

  • Conduct range operations in consonance with comprehensive sustainability plans that integrate operational, safety, facility and environmental management functions

  • Maximize and sustain the availability of military ranges by resourcing for restoration and maintenance of range infrastructure and land assets

  • Maximize the accessibility of DoD ranges by minimizing restrictions brought about by encroachment factors

  • Focus the environmental management systems to fully support sustained required access to ranges

  • Implement sustainment outreach efforts, coalition-building and partnering on range sustainment issues important to DoD readiness

  • Pursue the development of new technologies or capabilities that support range sustainment goals and objectives

Service programs must ensure that these

Sustainable Range program objectives receive adequate funding
