High Risk Adverse Impact Zone

The mission of the U.S. Air Force Warfare Center is to develop innovative leaders and full spectrum capabilities through responsive, realistic, and relevant Air Force and joint testing development, and advanced training across all levels of war.  The Nevada Test and Training Range (NTTR) provides full spectrum aircraft research, development, test, and evaluation (RDT&E) capabilities for the Air Force, other services, governments and civilian contracts.

Solar towers, communications towers and wind turbines built within the radio frequency line of sight of RDT&E systems can create significant adverse impacts to T&E activities depending on vertical height, electromagnetic sensitivity and distance from activities conducted on the range.

The High Risk of Adverse Impact Zone (HRAIZ) map depicts the Air Force area of interest for R-2508 and Nellis Test and Training Range (NTTR) operational areas.

If you are considering development in these areas, please contact the 99 Air Base Wing at Nellis AFB: (702) 652-2890 or the DOD Siting Clearinghouse at osd.dod-siting-clearinghouse@mail.mil.



Air Installation Compatibility Use Zone

The objective of the Air Installation Compatibility Use Zone (AICUZ) program is to achieve compatible uses of public and private lands in the vicinity of military airfields by controlling incompatible development through local actions. This update provides noise contours based on the Day-Night Average A-weighted Sound Level (DNL) metric used by the Air Force. This report provides the information necessary to maximize beneficial use of the land surrounding Nellis Air Force Base, while minimizing the potential for degradation of the safety, health and welfare of the affected public.


Installation Complex Encroachment Mgmt Action Plan

The military plays a significant role in the greater Southern Nevada area and has enjoyed decades of continuous support from Local communities. With historical roots dating back to the Las Vegas Army Air Field established in 1941. Nellis Air Force Base (AFB), Creech AFB and the Nevada Test and Training Range (NTTR) continue to serve as a one-of-a-kind interconnected base and range complex. Together these pivotal components have helped spur the growth and success of American air power for over 70 years.

Partners in One Community was developed as part of a 2013 encroachment planning analysis at Nellis AFB, Creech AFB and the NTTR, considering areas of shared interest between the bases and the community. This document highlights actions the Air Force and citizens can take together to enhance sustainability of local communities while preserving national security missions in Southern Nevada.
