Name: Military Range Complex

Display Field: FEAT_NAME

Type: Feature Layer

Geometry Type: esriGeometryPolygon

Description: A range complex is a designated set of specifically bounded geographic areas and encompasses a water component (above and below the surface), airspace, and may encompass a land component where training and testing of military platforms, tactics, munitions, explosives, and electronic warfare systems occur. Range complexes include established OPAREAs and special use airspace (SUA), which may be further divided to provide better control of the area and events being conducted for safety reasons. The Boston, Narragansett, Atlantic City, and VACAPES range complexes are located along the Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern seaboard of the United States, of which the former three collectively called the Northeast Range Complex. These areas are the principal locations for portions of the United States Navy’s major training and testing events and infrastructure, and span 761 miles along the coast from Maine to New Jersey. The Northeast Range Complex includes special use airspace with associated warning areas and surface and subsurface sea space of the Boston, Narragansett Bay, and Atlantic City OPAREAs. </p><ul><li><strong> Offshore Boston Range Complex</strong>: this range complex primarily consists of surface sea space and subsurface space and includes SUA and danger zones. Situated near Portsmouth, New Hampshire and Portsmouth Naval Shipyard (PNSY), the it is located off the coasts of Maine, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts. As part of the range complex, the Boston OPAREA extends from the shoreline seaward, encompassing an area from Cape Cod Bay and extending out into Massachusetts Bay and the Gulf of Maine. The subsurface space includes two submarine transit lanes used for the safe passage of submarines through the OPAREA. </li><li><strong> Offshore Narragansett Bay Complex</strong>: this range complex primarily consists of surface sea space and subsurface space. The offshore component of the range complex is located off the coasts of Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and New York. It is south of New London, CT, and Newport, RI, which both contain primary Navy installations. It consists of SUA, danger zones, and restricted areas. The Narragansett Bay OPAREA extends from the shoreline seaward, and is configured so as to avoid the heavy vessel traffic in and around the New York metropolitan area. </li><li><strong> Offshore Atlantic City Range Complex</strong>: located off the coast of New Jersey, the offshore component of the Atlantic City Range Complex consists of surface sea space and subsurface space and associated special use airspace. The offshore Atlantic City Range Complex additionally supports training and testing by other services, primarily USAF units from nearby bases.</li></ul><p>
