The dynamic nature of AUAB’s mission highlights a critical limiting factor: the current expeditionary infrastructure and facilities require constant effort to sustain the mission tempo or to support growth. There is limited ability to support current and future surge operations. Initially constructed as a temporary base, many facilities are obsolete, unreliable, and expensive to operate and maintain. Permanent construction and infrastructure upgrades need to be planned and executed deliberately to ensure success in the  program .
