Overview

This handbook describes Basic Expeditionary Airfield Resources (BEAR) Air Force civil engineers are likely to site, install, or operate in an expeditionary field environment. It provides a brief overview of major systems and equipment, along with applicable technical references.

Long before World War II, leaders in the Army Air Forces recognized the importance of being able to rapidly construct and sustain airfields close to or even behind enemy lines. Over the years, that fundamental understanding of projecting air power precipitated doctrine, organization, training, materiel, leadership and education, personnel, and facilities (DOTMLPF) that continues to evolve today. The Air Force's power projection mission requires that it be able to apply air, space, and cyberspace power anywhere in the world in support of U.S. national interests. In fact, air, space, and cyberspace power can reach across the full spectrum of military operations—from humanitarian assistance missions and stability operations, to the decisive application of air power in support of combat operations around the globe. To that end, the ability to develop a bare base or operating location quickly is an essential part of the USAF power projection mission, and subsequently one of civil engineers' (CE) most important expeditionary and contingency tasks. Like most major construction projects, developing a bare base or operating location to beddown forces require both skilled personnel and suitable materiel to build facilities and infrastructure. Basic Expeditionary Airfield Resources (BEAR) and other assets help fulfill the latter requirement. BEAR is essentially war readiness materiel that is configured and stored ready to deploy. This handbook primarily addresses BEAR assets used during bare base development and force beddown activities. It contains CE tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) that follow the precepts outlined in Air Force Doctrine Document (AFDD) 4-0, Combat Support, and AFDD 3-34, Engineer Operations, and aids in the implementation of Air Force Policy Directive (AFPD) 10-2, Readiness.
