6AFEMQ: Mr. Zander, can you give us a quick overview of the Air Force Encroachment Management Program?
7Leadership Perspective “Installations underpin all Air Force operational capabilities, and serve as the platforms from which we fly, fight, and win in air, space and cyberspace. The health of those installations – the facilities, the infrastructure, and the environment that comprise our garrison and expeditionary operating locations – directly impacts operational readiness. Therefore, I believe it is important to build sustainable installations that enable Air Force core operational capabilities.”General Mark A. Welsh IIIAir Force Chief of Staff (Select)July 2012
8AF Encroachment Program BLUF Encroachment on training and test ranges, airspace, military installations and electromagnetic spectrum is a critical issue for DoD and the servicesRequires a comprehensive process that includes engagement with federal, state, and local government stakeholdersEstablishes the need for action at all levels of leadership: Installation, MAJCOM and Air StaffMust interact with newly established DoD Siting Clearinghouse--a single DoD voice promoting compatibility between energy security and military capabilitiesRequires resourcing while leveraging existing organizational structureBuilding On - Not Replacing, Existing Tools and Programs
9EncroachmentEncroachment limits Air Force ability to test and train effectivelyAir Force response to encroachment is limited both by real factors, such as limited authorities, and perceived factors, such as the idea that host communities will protect our mission out of patriotism aloneLas Vegas & Nellis AFB: urban growth over time1972199220002006Nellis AFB
11AFEMQ: Col McCully, from an Installation Command perspective, can you share a case study outlining the types of encroachment challenges installations are dealing with?Q: Mr. Cooper, from a Community perspective, can you share a case study outlining the types of encroachment challenges resulting from military operations that are impacting communities?
12Encroachment Compatible Use Long-Term Mission Sustainment Regulatory RestrictionsCompetition for ResourcesSecurityEncroachment: any deliberate action by any governmental or non-governmental entity or individual that does, or is likely to inhibit, curtail, or impede current or future military activities within the installation complex and/or mission footprint; or deliberate military activity that is, or is likely to be incompatible with the use of a community’s resources.
13Installation Complex/ Mission Footprint Mission Footprint: The installation complex plus any land, facilities, airspace and/or ranges which is not managed by the installation, but which provides direct, routine support to the missionInstallation Complex: The land, facilities, airspace and ranges providing direct mission support to and/or are managed by the installation
15AFEMQ: Mr. Sample, from an Airspace and Range perspective, how has the AFEM Program impacted current mission operations?Q: Ms. Engelman, from a Compatible Land Use perspective, how does the AFEM program change the way the Air Force engages with stakeholders?
17AFEMQ: Ms. Neuman, from a MAJCOM perspective, what has been the outcome of the cross-functional nature of Encroachment Management Teams?Can you share a case study from Air Force Space Command as an example?
18Why Prepare an ICEMAP?Provide comprehensive situational awareness of mission needs and a customized installation encroachment management strategyProvide a common framework to assist AF Installation Complexes and community stakeholders in identifying encroachment issuesAssist AF Installation Complexes and community stakeholders to minimize existing and prevent future encroachment impacts to both Installation Complexes and local communitiesProvide an Action Plan to reduce the encroachment and sustainment challenge impacts on AF Installation Complexes and community stakeholdersDefine the internal and external engagement strategies
20AFEMQ: Mr. Chase, from an Installation Planner perspective, what has been the value of the ICEMAP?Can you share a case study where the ICEMAP has fostered collaborative community planning?Q: Mr. Cooper, from a Community perspective, can you describe the value of collaborative community planning?Q: Col McCully, can you share a case study where collaborative community planning prevented or minimized encroachment challenges?
