The military and the dep. of safety (DoD) have a long term have to entry land for education and trying out. either were criticized for failing to figure out their total land wishes, and for pursuing land expansions with out a rational process. Critics cost that the army is excited by land-grabs pushed via the shortcoming to percentage assets throughout organizational limitations inside DoD. This file examines the actual and organizational obstacles of the DoD and armed forces land base, and it makes use of the military as a case research of ways land necessities are made up our minds. The authors finish that physical--not organizational--boundaries, besides advances in weapon platforms, are the decisive components in settling on land requisites. actual limitations flip the problem of total army land wishes right into a meaningless idea. more often than not, each one deploy needs to ascertain person wishes. in spite of the fact that, organizational and institutional obstacles hinder DoD and

Together, these two activities could constitute a review of the entire military basing structure. We begin by analyzing the organizational and physical boundaries within the DoD and Army land base. We show how the DoD land base is divided among the military services (Army, Navy, Air Force, Page viii and Marine Corps) and by numerous organizational boundaries within each service. The Army's land is divided among several major commands, subcommands, and installations. At each level, intra-agency organizational boundaries separate the land manager and land user.
However, under the assumptions that large maneuver warfare remains an Army priority and that the Army will continue to need to conduct realistic multiechelon field training, trends in technology and tactics point to the need for larger expanses of training land. Page 16 Figure 6 While Figure 5 suggests the eventual need for more land, Figure 6 suggests a possible overabundance today. Despite steep declines in the defense budget (measured in constant dollars), the DoD manages roughly the same amount of land it did 15 years ago.
Instead, the availability of the land and local political support were the primary elements of success or failure. Given that additional land will benefit Page ix a significant subset of Army installations (virtually all those housing active units), it is rational for the Army to use feasibility of acquisition as the primary factor for determining whether to pursue a land initiative. We then discuss the role of simulation technology and BRAC in meeting future land needs. Both BRAC and simulation offer the possibility of overcoming the physical boundaries that divide the DoD land base.
