Abstract: The Army must have the ability to rapidly plan and locate engineered 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 details the design steps used to develop the Touchdown Point (TDP) Module in the Engineer Site Identification for the Tactical Environment (ENSITE) remote planning tool. The module is used for preliminary design and siting of TDPs for landing helicopters. Since the TDP module within ENSITE is a remote planning tool for a very specific set of design criteria, this work presents the rationale for why the module makes certain assumptions, how it calculates certain quantities, and where it obtains its data.
