Abstract: The Army must have an ability to rapidly plan and locate engineering sites, such as soldier base camps or airfields, for supporting maximum combat effectiveness of deployed forces. By defining mission-specific site requirements prior to force deployment and facility locations and construction, Army commanders and planners are able to optimize various siting and design decisions. This report documents the technical and doctrinal parameters used to develop the Tactical Airport Site Selection (TASS) module in the Engineer Site Identification for the Tactical Environment (ENSITE) computer planning tool. ENSITE/TASS is a remote planning tool designed for field-expedient use and a very specific set of design criteria. This report contains the rationale for why the ENSITE/TASS development process made certain assumptions, how it calculated certain quantities, and which sources of data it incorporated.
