Currently, Alaska’s military assets include air, land, and sea areas to replicate realistic conditions for
training and testing of combat systems. However, expanded weapons and sensor capabilities, expanded mobility,
and improved communications have all driven the need for larger training areas. To address this need, the Army and Air Force
undertook a rigorous screening and evaluation process to identify actions and projects in the JPARC Modernization and Enhancement EIS shown below.
proposals involve expanding and/or establishing new Military Operations Areas, restricted airspace, airspace
corridors, expanding access to training areas, and developing new ranges and facilities to provide adequate resources to conduct training
and testing under realistic and varied conditions.
