Abstract : This report responds to a tentative decision made by the Secretary of the Army on June 29, 1995, to move Army aviation testing activities now at Edwards Air Force Base, California, to Fort Rucker, Alabama, and retain Yuma Proving Ground. This decision represented a shift from previous Army studies, which had recommended consolidating all Army aviation testing at Yuma. This report addresses (1) the Army's cost and savings analyses for three consolidation options involving Edwards Air Force Base, Fort Rucker, and Yuma Proving Ground and (2) Defense-wide implications of the Secretary's tentative decision.
