CIVIL ENGINEER BARE BASE DEVELOPMENT
|Publication Date:||23 January 2012|
Development of a bare base, while comprised of many tasks is performed with one goal in mind-quickly setting up infrastructure to support aircraft operations and other contingency missions. Engineer efforts and work force must be focused and concentrated on the establishment of facilities, structures and services that help bring about an initial operational capability (IOC). Civil engineer (CE) bare base development actions relies heavily on the use of Basic Expeditionary Airfield Resources (BEAR) mobile assets, as well as the type of information and procedures addressed here. This handbook contains tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) for use by civil engineers in supporting precepts outlined in Air Force Doctrine Document (AFDD) 4-0, Combat Support, and AFDD 3-34, Engineer Operations, and it aids in the implementation of Air Force Policy Directive (AFPD) 10-2, Readiness. This relationship is illustrated in the Air Force CE hierarchy of publications (Figure 1.1.). Prime Base Engineer Emergency Force (Prime BEEF) team leaders, supervisors, and other members may find this handbook useful when organizing beddown operations, including management of beddown teams, and the erection, construction, and repair of airfield pavements, facilities, utilities, and other vital infrastructure.
