The Sustainable Range Program is the Army’s roadmap for how it designs, manages and uses it ranges to ensure the capability, availability, and accessibility of its ranges to meet its training mission. It is the Army’s response to the increasing challenges brought about by encroachment and meeting the ever increasing need for ranges and training land brought about by:
- The Global War on Terrorism
- The Army Campaign Plan
- Base Realignment and Closure
- Global Defense Posture Realignment
Because many programs and functions affect the management of our ranges and training lands, the Sustainable Range Program is the Army’s overarching guidance for integrating operational, training, facility, safety, and environmental requirements to improve the management of its ranges and ensure their sustainability to support mission requirements now and into the future.
The Army’s Sustainable Range Program is made up of its two core programs: the Range and Training Land Program (RTLP), which includes the day-to-day management of its ranges as well as new range construction; and the Integrated Training Area Management (ITAM) Program for the repair and maintenance of its maneuver lands.
Integral to the success and support of the two core programs is the Soldier Readiness Program (SRP) Outreach Program, dedicated to educating the public on the importance of live-fire training and improving the Army’s understanding of public concerns related to how we train and manage our ranges.
The Sustainable Range Program, AR 350-19, is the Army’s overall approach for improving the way in which it designs, manages, and uses its ranges. SRP’s goal is to maximize capability, availability, and accessibility of ranges and training lands. SRP is defined by two core programs, the Integrated Training Area Management, and the Range and Training Land Program.
