Florida’s military installations face encroachment challenges but the state protects them from mission impacts by taking a proactive approach.
There are multiple ways activities and development can encroach upon a current military mission whether by incompatible development on the ground or above ground and into the airspace, through unattended autonomous vehicles such as drones, and broach use of frequencies. We must ensure the assigned military units and our installations remain capable of conducting all of their missions without impact. Our installations and units train to contribute to US national security. View the FDSTF Strategic Plan and Encroachment Objective and the FDA Strategic Plan and Encroachment Objective.
