Dugway Proving Ground will soon send 11 environmental conditioning chambers to Yuma Proving Ground in Arizona, saving that installation nearly $2 million over the cost of new chamcost of maintaining chambers it no longer uses. Until approximately 10 years ago, Dugway regularly tested munitions, stepping outside its assigned missions of testing smoke or obscurant producing devices, or defenses against chemical or biological agents. Employing environmental conditioning chambers that can produce from 75 to nearly 200 degrees Fahrenheit, munitions were challenged to function under AND MUCH MORE DISPATCH INSIDE YOUR Gift to Yuma is a smart money move for Dugway. page 1&2 The challenges and rewards of being a part of Team Dugway. page 1&2 Art and science combine to enhance testing and training at Dugway. page 1&3 1st quarter mission & mission support employees announced.

At Dugway Proving Ground, communication and coordination in a digital era means that operations have the best information for available for testing and training events. Geographic Information Systems, GIS, has revolutionized the way military commanders and support teams function in a chemical or biological environment. They have come to rely on the easy to use geospatial mapping applications that can interact with laptops, tablets and smartphones. At the foreground of mapping technology, at Dugway, are three highly experienced mapmakers. Jared Mathis and Peter Hansen of the Environmental Technology Office, West Desert Test Center and Jason Raff of the garrison Environmental Programs Division. They harness the power of geography using narrative text, images and multimedia content What does it mean to be part of Team Dugway? I wanted to pose this question, as it may mean something different to all of us in some ways. Also, we are a community in transition with resource limitations and a challenging, yet exciting future ahead. So I thought it would be great to share my thoughts on what it means to me to be part of Team Dugway. Ultimately, it will take all of us to keep Team Dugway and our community strong. Being part of Team Dugway is one of the greatest things I could ask for. Having never worked in Utah before or at an extremely remote site, it has been an entirely eye opening experience. We have some of the most beautiful country you can imagine. Right here on Dugway we have an amazing history of support to the nation, as well as artifacts that go far back in history. Also, we have some of the greatest people you could ask to work with and learn from here at Dugway and throughout the region in a wide variety of fields of study and programs of interest. Having the opportunity to continue serving my country here at Dugway with so many outstanding professionals, has provided many growth opportunities as well as a chance to see positive impacts of our collective efforts. That is not to say that being part of Team Dugway does not have its challenges. As a truly remote site far from many of the comforts others may take for granted, it can be challenging. Especially during periods of extreme weather or tough work weeks. However, we are an incredibly diverse group who is truly committed to the mission and serving our country. It is great to see how everyone looks out for each other and our community members. I have been very Command Perspective.

These included practice mortar rounds that flashed and banged upon impact, and aerial flares fired from mortars. But Army Test and Evaluation Command decided to return its proving grounds to their intended missions. Munitions testing returned almost exclusively to Yuma Proving Ground, Arizona. Eventually, Dugway was faced with replacing the control systems on seven 100 Series, wheeled conditioning chambers at $65,000 to $75,000 each. Purchased 30 years ago for $135,000 each, a new 100 Series chamber costs about $300,000 today, according to Jim Barnett, chief of the Physical & Environmental Branch of the Test Support Division. mission, but they are compatible said, so he offered them to Yuma: no cost, you haul away and replace the control systems. Yuma accepted the offer and saved itself and the taxpayer more than $1.5 million. By September, the seventh 100 Series chamber should be trucked to Yuma. More savings may be in the works. Dugway has four 20 Series, skid mounted conditioning chambers it no longer uses. They too require upgrading. Barnett, and Brendt Sigvardt, an engineering technician with the same branch, recently submitted leadership, calling for the reduction of 20 and 100 Series chambers, yet retaining chambers that provide a wide range of environmental challenges: humidity, fungus, salt fog, solar radiation, blowing dust, altitude, vibration and bounce chambers. They also proposed the construction of three large, fixed chambers to allow trained personnel operate chemical and biological detectors in challenging conditions, for more authentic testing. With the three large chambers completed, even more portable chambers could be disposed of but some would be retained as a backup or for field use portability. With fewer chambers, fewer operators would be needed and sustainment cost is reduced, Sigvardt and Barnett note in their proposal. Though costs are cut, corners will not be: smoke or obscurant producing devices, or defenses against chemical or biological agents, will continue to be vigorously challenged to ensure they function as required, under a multitude of conditions. Ironically, Barnett may not see the fruition of his labors after nine years in the Army and 35 years as a Dugway worker, he plans to retire the end of September. But Sigvardt and others will remain to see this and other plans through, supporting the Warfighter of all services, and civilian agencies, no matter where they may be. CORNER Over the winter, my lawn took on a nice winter brown. Occasionally it was covered with beautiful white stuff we call snow. But as Spring took up residence, I watched as my lawn began to transform from a dull brown to a vibrant green. I also noticed that I started to get little yellow flowers raising their little heads above my grass. These yellow flowers, while looking nice and adding a nice contrast to the lawn, were not what I was looking for in my lawn. I thought, before the fall had arrived, that I had killed off most of the weeds that had invaded my lawn. I was wrong! They were merely biding their time till the sun began to warm the grass. So I began a plan to eradicate them from my lawn. I have recently sprinkled weed and feed on my grass. But I know that once will not be enough it will have to be a continual process. the outside it can appear that everything is ok and, in fact, it may seem like you have it all together. But when the stresses of life begin to take their toll, our true character, what is under the surface, begins to creep out. Sometimes what emerges is pretty amazing, the adversity uncovering character and strength that is commendable. But many times what comes up is not what we intend or want. When this happens we need to take a hard look at ourselves and make a decision. Hopefully we want to intentionally improve our lives and move into a new area of growth. That is where we, as a community and as friends, come along and help one another. My lawn by itself is incapable of weeding itself. Left to its own devices, the good grass will be choked out by the weeds. It dandelions but also other weeds that are abrasive and not good to walk on. In your own life you may not be able to remove the weeds, but with help it can be done. We as friends can help each other. We can come alongside one another, lifting each other up and helping to remove the weeds of life. In Luke 10 Jesus was asked the story of the Good Samaritan. That story shows that anyone can family, or your co workers, it can encourage others, helping them deal with the stresses of life. grateful to get to know so many here at Dugway and their passion for service to the nation and our community. How we communicate with each other is so important. Our complex mission, high operational tempo, and resource challenges can strain working relationships and how we talk and work with each other. It is certainly true here, unlike anywhere else that every person is critical to the success of our mission. You have to earn it every day, to be part of Team Dugway. Everything should start with the Army Values of Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless Service, Honor, Integrity, and Personal Courage. Also, it often requires a high degree of creativity to solve various problems. Living up to the Army Values is not always easy. I fall short often and communicating effectively is an area that can always be improved. Team Dugway has some of the most creative people you could ask for and I appreciate how we work together to keep the mission and community going. I hope this provides a little insight into why I am grateful to be part of Team Dugway and to get to work alongside so many outstanding professionals supporting our critical mission and community. If you have the opportunity, please take a few minutes to think what being part of Team Dugway together and as a team we will move into the future supporting each other, and the mission of Dugway. Be safe out there and thank you for what all of you do. Continued from page 1.

for Army testers and interagency partners. as they prepare to brief a test project for the Initial Command An ICR is conducted before any test is green lighted. This means the test officer must be thoroughly prepared to explain the scope of the test, every stage of the process and the expected results. As a senior GIS analyst, Mathis has the expertise to recognize what data needs to be gathered and use GIS mapping to illustrate the test area and specific test site. This means a mapmaker helps to prepare documentation contextual tools to analyze and visualize the proposed test. my job to help simplify what the test officer or the customer envisions. Once an overall map of the test area is created, it often leads to the creation of smaller sectional maps that show more facets of the planned test. The map team will then produce graphs or diagrams of the test site to ensure the command and the test team can visualize what the test officer and customer expects to accomplish, Mathis explained. quirements. We help coordinate activities such as movement routes or show where key test elements like sensors and detectors should be placed. Maps can depict surface danger zones for live fire training and help prepare or respond faster in a crucial situGIS mapping is both a science and an art. GIS programs use a raster to vector data conversion. This means they can take a varie t y o f d i v e r s e s t a t i s t i c s f i g u r e s photographs and facts and convert or combine data for the advanced testing that takes place at the proving ground. Peter Hansen, a GIS analyst new to the Environmental Technology Office, is also an experienced mapmaker. He brings an artistic background that adds another layer of expertise to the mapmaking team. He points to a map on his comview of Granite Mountain, located near the center of the test range. The map shows subtle blue and grey shading of the slopes.

It can be intimidating for local small businesses to learn how to obtain contracts with Dugway Proving Ground for goods and annual Small Business Vendor Fair. The April 12 event was well attended by small business owners from chiefly Utah and some adjoining states. During the three hour event, peak attendance reached approximately 110 visitors and exhibitors. The fair was sponsored by the Mission and Installation Contracting Command (MICC) office at Dugway, and the regional MICC Fort Carson Small Business Specialist who supports contracting efforts at Fort Carson, Colorado; Fort Sill, Oklahoma; and Dugway. Col. Brant Hoskins, commander of Dugway Proving Ground welcomed vendors seeking information. He emphasized that, we do for the nation and its alsimulates scenarios to train American forces, civilian agencies and foreign allies how to locate, identify, and deal with chemical or biological agents.

What is it? Establishment of the Army Futures Command is the most significant Army reorganization effort since 1973. Army Futures Command will be the fourth Army Command and will be tasked with driving the Army into the future to achieve clear overmatch in future conflicts. The Army Commands (ACOMs): Army Forces Command : Force provider of the Army trains, prepares a combat ready, globally responsive Total Army Force of U.S. Army Soldiers to build and sustain Army readiness to meet Combatant Command requirements. Army Training and Doctrine Command : Architect of the Army recruits, trains designs, acquires, and builds the Army. Army Materiel Command : Sustains the Army provides materiel readiness by equipping and sustaining the force. Army Futures Command: Modernizes the Army for the future will integrate the future operational environment, threat, and technologies to develop and deliver future force requirements, designing future force organi z a t i o n s a n d d e l i v e r i n g m a t e r i e l c a p a b i l i t i e s Characteristics Custodian of Army modernization efforts; linking operational concepts to requirements to acquisition to fielding. Bring concepts and requirements definitions together with engineering and acquisitions functions into one team. Small agile headquarters focused on flexibility, collaboration, and speed. Focus of faster innovation, experimentation, and demonstration. Enable rapid prototyping -failing early and cheaply, and then increase learning with increased operational inputs Structure Each Army Futures Command subordinate organization currently exists as an organization within TRADOC, AMC, ASA (ALT) or Army Test and Evaluation Command. Army Futures Command's subordinate organization will remain at their current locations but will be realigned to ensure all Army major commands remain closely linked. Cross Functional Teams (CFTs) will report to the Army Futures Command. Program Managers will remain under the control of ASA (ALT) but teamed with the CFTs. Command group headquarters will be located near innovative and agile industrial and academic institutions to align with these organizations and in a place where the command will inculcate the culture needed to develop the innovation and synergy required to lead the Army's modernization effort. Organization Army Futures Command will have three subordinate organizations: Futures and Concepts will identify and prioritize capability development needs and opportunities. Combat Development will conceptualize and develop solutions for identified needs and opportunities. Combat Systems will refine, engineer, and produce developed solutions. All acquisition authority is derived from Army Acquisition Executive (AAE), to whom the Program Mangers report. Futures Command is responsible for requirements and supports the Program Managers. Program managers remain under the control of ASA (ALT) but matrixed against the CFTs. What is the Army doing/ has done? WAYS: The Army's modernization strategy has one focus: make Soldiers and units more lethal to win the nation's wars, then come home safely. MEANS: The modernization process will leverage commercial innovation, cutting edge science and technology, prototyping and warfighter feedback. ENDS: Unity of command and unity of effort for the Army's modernization effort ensures accountability, transparency and responsible stewardship of the nation's resources. In support of the overall strategy, Army Futures Command will synchronize efforts among the ACOMs and across the cross functional teams to advance the Army's six modernization priorities: Long Range Precision Fires Next Generation Combat Vehicle Future Vertical Lift Army Network Air and Missile Defense Soldier Lethality Army Futures Command In a Nutshell.
