Abstract : This thesis contains unclassified information identified and collected for Base Engineer Emergency Force (BEEF) teams deploying to Egypt or the Arabian Peninsula on short notice. Previously, no single document was available to give teams the regional and site-specific information needed to carry out their mission. Topics include Islamic religious, cultural, and business customs; regional health information; desert engineering considerations; climate; maps showing airfield locations, and concise descriptions of 240 airfields in the region that could support tactical operations. Each description includes airfield latitude and longitude, runway length, local relief, local vegetation, and airfield distance from nearby cities. The thesis is designed so that when its purely academic sections are removed, the remainder forms a self-contained, fully indexed deployment manual. The thesis concludes with the recommendation that similar manuals be produced for other possible deployment regions, with suggestions for making classified site-specific information available to deploying teams, and with a recommendation for adding computer generated graphics to aid deploying teams in bare base design.
