  • Bragg Engineers Test Airfield Repair Innovations at Sicily Drop Zone

    Mar 18, 2016

    Resting the shovel on his shoulder, the Paratrooper tipped up his patrol cap up to wipe away the grime and sweat from his brow as the unseasonably warm sun blazed overhead. The breeze toyed with the cloud of dust erupting from the concrete saw on the other side of the slab, driving it towards him. He could taste the gritty white dust on his tongue. With the dust came a high-intensity buzz as the saw chewed into the hardened surface. As the orange, North Carolina soil poured from the bucket loader onto the sand grid at his feet, he began to spread the dirt around, filling the black tubes that would provide stability for the notional crater repair on a simulated flight landing strip. For the past three weeks, horizontal construction engineers from throughout Fort Bragg observed and demonstrated airfield damage repair (ADR) techniques on Sicily Drop Zone under the instruction of the Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) in support of potential future Global Response Force operations.

  • Engineers Build Training Opportunities for the Joint, Total Army Force

    Mar 18, 2016

    The stark sunlight dulled the natural contrast of colors, subduing the myriad clothing of the large crowd of Soldiers, Airmen, Marines and civilians. They listened intently to the droning roar of the concrete saw, the pulsing thud of the hydraulic hammer, and the curt commands of the noncommissioned officers to the equipment operators. Moments passed while the crowd observed as the airborne engineers demonstrated the first step of an airfield crater repair. Only the Paratroopers conducting the demonstration were close enough to appreciate the satisfying crack of the large chuck of concrete cleaving apart. Their task completed, the Paratroopers retreated from the pad, returning the M400 skid steer loader to its display configuration. They fell into the position of "parade rest," as the dust settled. The demonstration's narrator seized the audience's attention again, launching into an explanation of the next display. For the past three weeks, U.S. joint military and civilian engineers teamed up at Sicily Drop Zone on Fort Bragg, N.C., to train on and observe innovative capabilities for airfield damage repair (ADR) techniques in support of joint forcible entry operations. Nearly 50 engineers from the 82nd Airborne Division, 20th Engineer Brigade, and the Army Reserve 844th Engineer Battalion, 926th Engineer Brigade from Tennessee, participated in the training.
