Report to Congress on Sustainable Ranges

In an effort to understand the extent to which encroachment impacts the training of our armed forces, the Congress, in Section 366 of the Bob Stump National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year (FY) 2003, as amended, required DoD to submit annual reports (during FYs 2005-2013) on military training range needs, resources, and constraints. This report is intended to meet this requirement as well as describe the Department's overall progress in developing a comprehensive plan to address training constraints caused by limitations on the use of military lands, marine areas, and airspace. The report also provides an updated, comprehensive inventory of DoD training ranges.
