AIR FORCE - AFPAM 10-219 VOL 5
BARE BASE CONCEPTUAL PLANNING
|Publication Date:||30 March 2012|
The information in this volume supports implementation of Air Force Policy Directive (AFPD) 10-2, Readiness, and 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. This relationship is illustrated in the Air Force CE hierarchy of publications (Figure 1.2). Engineer planners and others may find the information in this volume is most helpful when used as a starting point for planning a bare base or supporting austere locations. While each location has its own special requirements and features, there are commonalities that will not change despite the location. The base and facility layouts, facility guide matrices, utility layouts and drawings in this volume can be used and adapted to meet almost any site-specific location. This volume highlights key features and considerations associated with Air Force bare base planning; provides a concept of employment and a sequence for bare base construction; and serves as a road map that leads bare base planners from the initial response phase to the material acquisition phase. It is a checklist to ensure each crucial action that affects the base's ability to function effectively is taken. This volume may not present the final or specific solution to a given problem. It is not expected to anticipate or solve all problems that might be encountered during beddowns. It simply addresses problems mostlikely encountered and gives guidance so important aspects of the task will not be overlooked. While this conceptual planning pamphlet was developed for use anywhere in the world, it deals most heavily with the Southwest Asia (SWA) theater of operations. It primarily addresses bare base locations that have little to no host nation support.
