Personal Author E. R. Lefler
Abstract US Forces are currently required to conduct extended operations over time in deployed locations. Over time, these deployed locations may evolve into enduring base camps. There are currently no standards addressing the planning, design, construction, operations, management, transfer or closure of base camps In the past 20 years the Army has established over 1000 base camps; each one was a one off effort. The United States Army Concept Capability Plan for Army Base Camps in Full Spectrum Operation for the Future Modular Force. (TRADOC Pamphlet 525-7-7) addresses the planning, design, construction/deconstruction, operations and management of base camps. G-4 has established a Contingency Basing Community of Practice (CoP)/Council of Colonels (CoC) ASA IE&E has been given direct oversight role.
