1.4.5. AFRC and ANG Installations. AFRC and ANG installations on municipal airports or FAA-
controlled airfields must apply FAA criteria to facilities such as runways and taxiways that are
jointly used by civilian and military aircraft. Facilities that are for military use only, such as aircraft
parking aprons, must apply Air Force/DoD criteria.
1.4.6. HQ USAFE may implement NATO standards in lieu of the standards provided in this manual.
1.5. Service Requirements. When criteria differ among the various Services, the criteria for the
specific Service are noted. For USAF, all work orders processed for work within the airfield
environment must be signed by the Airfield Manager before work may proceed.
1.6. Theater-of-Operations. Standards for theater-of-operations facilities are contained in: Army
FM 5-430-00-2/Air Force Joint Pamphlet (AFJPAM) 32-8013, Volume 2, Planning and Design of
Roads, Airfields, and Heliports in the Theater of Operations.
1.7. Security Considerations for Design. Regulatory requirements for security of assets can have a
significant impact on planning and design of airfields and heliports. The arms, ammunition, explosives
and electronic devices associated with aircraft, as well as the aircraft themselves, require varying types
and levels of protection. Operational security of the airfield is also a consideration.
1.7.1. Integration of Security Measures. Protective features such as barriers, fences, lighting, access
control, intrusion detection and assessment must be integrated into the airfield planning and design
process to minimize problems with aircraft operations and safety requirements. This is discussed
further in Chapter 2. The protective measures should be included in the design based on risk and
threat analysis or should comply with security-related requirements.
1.7.2. Security-Related Requirements. Detailed discussion of security-related requirements is
beyond the scope of this manual. Designer should refer to the following applicable security
regulations for planning and design guidance:
126.96.36.199. AFI 31-101, The Physical Security Program
188.8.131.52. OPNAVINST 5513.14B, Physical Security and Loss Prevention
184.108.40.206. MIL-HDBK-1013/1, Design Guidelines for Physical Security of Facilities

1.8. Waivers to Criteria. Each DoD Service component is responsible for setting administrative
procedures necessary to process and grant formal waivers. Waivers to the criteria contained in this
manual will be processed in accordance with Attachment 2. If a waiver affects instrument approach and
departure procedures as defined in TERPS (AFJMAN 11-226/TM 95-226/OPNAVINST 3722.16C), the
