Funding Constraints Impede Range Modernization for Marine Corps Officials Say

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR The tradeoffs required for the Marine Corps to cope with stringent budget caps over the past several years have come at the expense of efforts to upgrade its training ranges to handle new operational challenges, senior officials from the service told the House Armed Services’ Readiness Subcommittee last month.“In recognition of the currently constrained fiscal environment, the Marine Corps has been required to sacrifice further range modernization for the sustainment and recapitalization of existing capacities and capabilities,” Maj. Gen. Charles Hudson, commander of Marine Corps Installations Command and assistant deputy commandant for installations and logistics, said during a Dec. 3 hearing on the impact of reducing funding for infrastructure and installation support.“This means that we are unable to adequately address the required training enhancements associated with new and emerging operational requirements,” Hudson said.There are some exceptions, however. He cited Congress’ support for expanding the service’s largest and most capable range at Twentynine Palms, Calif. That effort will allow the Marine Corps to exercise a three-maneuver battalion, a Marine expeditionary brigade and a live-fire training environment.Lawmakers also approved funding to expand the Townsend Bombing Range in Georgia, which will allow personnel on the East Coast to train with precision-guided munitions used by the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter.Maj. Gen. Brian Beaudreault, commanding general of 2nd Marine Division, told the panel the major “training gap” for troops under his command is range modernization.In many cases, a diminished level of funding for infrastructure requires units to travel to other installations to prepare them to be “ready to fight and operate across the full range of military operations,” Beaudreault said.“So that requires me to often go off of installation in places like Twentynine Palms, places like Fort Stewart, Fort Bragg, A.P. Hill, Fort Pickett, where I can ensure that the force that I’m deploying forward can meet every one of its demands,” he stated.Without sufficient funding to upgrade its ranges, the service’s training resources are unable to keep up with the requirements of its newest aircraft.“For example, with the MV-22 we now fly twice as far and twice as fast as legacy helicopters. The Joint Strike Fighter is going to have new weapons systems that … dwarf the capabilities of legacy aircraft today,” Col. Chris Pappas III, commanding officer at Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point, N.C., told the panel.“And they’re putting a great deal of pressure upon our range space that were perfectly acceptable in legacy airframes. … So that is a bigger challenge I think we’re going to have to look at to meet future training challenges,” Pappas said.Learn more about how states and communities can help installations upgrade their range infrastructure at next month’s Installation Innovation Forum 2016. A special focus of the conference will be understanding defense infrastructure and how it impacts an installation’s military value. The conference will be held from Feb. 29-March 2 in Charleston, S.C. More details about the conference program and location are available on the conference website.last_img read more

first_imgA plane crash in a remote mountain region in northern Mexico claimed the lives of all 13 people on board, including a family of five that were flying back from watching a boxing match in Las Vegas, authorities and local media said on Monday.The wreckage of the plane that took off from Las Vegas on Sunday was found via aerial surveillance in the northern municipality of Ocampo, the government of Coahuila state said in a statement.A photograph published on local television network Milenio showed what it said were the burnt remnants of the plane, broken into pieces, spread over charred earth.Mexican media reported that the passengers had been to a boxing match between Mexican boxer Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and U.S. fighter Daniel Jacobs in Las Vegas on Saturday.The nationalities of the victims were not immediately clear. The surnames of the three crew and 10 passengers published by the Coahuila government were all Hispanic.The victims were between 19 and 57 years old, according to a version of the passenger list published in Mexican media.Newspaper Diario de Yucatan said on its website that among the victims were 55-year-old businessman Luis Octavio Reyes Dominguez, his wife, and their three children.In a statement, Canada’s Bombardier Inc identified the jet as a Challenger 601 and said the plane had gone missing about 150 nautical miles from the northern Mexican city of Monclova.Expressing its condolences to the victims, the company said it had been in touch with Canada’s transportation safety board and would work with the investigating authorities.Alvarez was saddened to hear of the crash.”I deeply lament the terrible accident of the plane coming from Vegas,” he wrote on Twitter on Monday. “I’m deeply grateful for the support of all the people who travel to see my fights. My prayers are with their families.”Mexico’s civil aviation authority said the aircraft departed Las Vegas shortly before 3 p.m. local time. Nearly two hours later, Monterrey lost track of the jet and was unable to make contact with pilots, it said in a statement.Mexican broadcaster Televisa said that the pilot had intended to descend to avoid a storm.Francisco Martinez, an emergency services official in Coahuila, told Milenio recent adverse weather conditions would form part of the investigation into the crash. However, he stopped short of saying weather had caused it.last_img read more

Hawaiian Vog Where Theres SmokeThere is Something Brewing

first_imgThe Kilauea Volcano located on the Big Island of Hawaii is currently registering an Orange Alert which means the volcano is exhibiting a heightened or elevated risk of eruption or is erupting with minor or no volcanic ash emissions. Of particular concern is Halema’ Uma’ u crater, hvo.wr.usgs.gov/cam3/ and the Pu’ u’ ‘O’ o vent hvo.wr.usgs.gov/cam/index.htm located on the Kilauea Volcano. This document is subject to copyright.

Additionally lava from the Pu’ u’ ‘O’ o vent has sent lava flowing into the ocean. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, Hawaiian Volcano Observatory a 4.3 magnitude earthquake was registered in the nearby area of at nearby Ka’ena Point. Since this date the Kilauea Summit has registered daily earthquake activity in a range of 1.7 to 2.6 magnitude. USGS scientists Bernard Chouet and Phil Dawson have developed modeling tools and analytic methods for evaluting volcanic activity from Italy to Japan and their expertise is being used to evaluate the recent Kilauea Volcano. Preliminary findings of Chouet and Dawson indicate the VLP (very long period) tremors appear to originate from a rather specific source locations, clustering at sea level or 1 kilometer below the caldera floor. However, at the Northeast corner of Halema’ Uma’ u the range depth is approximately several hundred meters. The tremor bursts appear to be beneath the Halema’ Uma’ u flume which opened on March 19, 2008. Per a communication from Phil Dawson, he states, “I am not able to fully convey the amazement that I feel each day as I watch this sequence unfold.” Visitors are warned not to venture into the lava deltas because of the possibility of explosions. Moreover, the steam plumes rising after lava enters the ocean are highly acidic and contain glass particles. The local Civil Defense website offers updates on lava flows at www.lavainfo.us . Daily updates of Kileaue Volcano are available at hvo.wr.usgs.gov/ . The volcanic pollution or Vog is currently under study by medical professionals and the USGS. Vog is sulfur dioxide and is the result of volcanic eruptions. The volcanic air pollution creates a hazy appearance in the otherwise bucolic environment. The main concern of health officials in Hawaii is the effect Vog is having on the respiratory and pulmonary system of its residents and visitors. Currently, health officials have set up Sulfur Dioxide Alerts in effected areas to warn residents. People with respiratory illnesses and the general population are encouraged to reduce physically challenging activities, drink fluids or stay indoors during high Vog conditions. According to Dr. Elizabeth Tam of the University of Hawaii Medical School, volcanic air pollution may trigger asthma attacks in susceptible patients. Dr. Tam, preliminary results indicate Vog or volcanic pollution will not cause asthma, it can trigger asthma attacks. Dr. Tam and her colleagues are studying the long term effects of Vog on school children. The longitudinal study began six-years ago and will continue until the particular children in the study reach the age of 18. Scientists and volcano watchers alike are keeping a watchful eye on the activities around the Kilauea Volcano. Explore further Halema’ Uma’ u Crater–Kilauea Volcano Credit: USGSlast_img read more
