The Army Aviation Team from a Military Civil Engineer's Perspective

by Paige E. Johnson, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Washington, United States,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: International Air Transportation: A New International Airport


The Technical Session for which this paper is written is 'Airfield Pavements - A Team Effort.' As such, the emphasis on this paper is the United States Army Aviation Team, and not the individual technical issues illustrating the team effort. Many of the technical subjects used to illustrate the team's effort could be expanded into individual technical papers. For a civil engineer to properly analyze and provide state-of-the-art technology for Army airfield pavements, it is necessary for the engineer to fully comprehend the United States Army's aviation mission. Civil engineering encompasses a wide range of technologies to support the United States Army's aviation mission. It includes: aircraft development; aircraft operations; airfield operations (fixed base and theater-of-operations); military training; airfield technology research and development; airfield design and construction (fixed base and theater); and integration of the military mission into the civilian national and international communities. This paper outlines a few of the United States Army Aviation Team's interfaces with its military civil engineer members. To fully cover the entire mission of all team members serving on the Army's Aviation Team is too extensive for this paper. However, through selective illustrations and information, the reader should grasp the magnitude, diversity, and flavor of the Team's dedication, professionalism, team synergy, mission, infrastructure, and specifically, the military civil engineer's contributions.
