Consequently, the Air Force now proposes upgrades to BMGR-East that include: *Developing a training area to train in the use of precision-guided munitions in an urban setting (no actual air-toground ordnance would be released) * Reconfiguring targets in tactical and manned ranges, which may include relocating targets within pre-2001 annual explosive ordnance disposal clearance areas within the tactical ranges * Introducing a remotely operated moving target to provide aircrews with realistic training to engage moving vehicle targets * Reconfiguring Manned Range 3 to include a helicopter gunnery range with fixed, moving, and pop-up targets * Modifying the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) among the Department of the Interior and the Secretaries of the Navy and the Air Force to change the floor for routine flight training operations over portions of the Cabeza Prieta National Wildlife Refuge from 1,500 feet to 500 feet above ground level to support realistic lowlevel approaches to targets; BMGR-East restricted airspace (R–2301E) is currently authorized for use from the surface to 80,000 feet above mean sea level, but training flight operations, with the exception of certain low-level flights along designated corridors, are limited by the 1994 MOU to 1,500 feet over the National Wildlife Refuge * Developing an additional target for air-to-ground missiles in the East Tactical Range to allow training in airto-ground missile delivery from multiple directions; the proximity of the current missile target to the range boundary severely constrains training * Supporting training by small squads of troops or individual soldiers on foot * Paving the road from Manned Range 1 to the water well to minimize vehicle wear, maintenance costs, and dust on this heavily used road * Excavating, transporting, and stockpiling sand and gravel resources to provide an on-range source of these materials for road maintenance as well as target reconfiguration and maintenance * Constructing a taxiway and air traffic control tower at the Gila Bend Air Force Auxiliary Field to improve airfield safety and expand operational capacity Anticipated issues to be addressed in the EIS include, but are not limited to, airspace and range operations; water, VerDate Aug<31>2005 22:27 Dec 27, 2007 Jkt 214001 biological resources (including endangered species), cultural resources; air quality; noise; and public access, health, and safety.
