Integrated Training Area Management (iTam)
The Integrated Training Area Management (ITAM) program provides the Army with the capabilities to manage and maintain training and testing lands by integrating mission requirements with environmental and land management practices.
The objectives of the Army's ITAM program are to:
- Achieve optimal sustained use of lands for the execution of realistic training and testing by providing a sustainable core capability that balances usage, condition, and level of maintenance.
- Implement a management and decision-making process that integrates Army training and other mission requirements for land use with sound natural resources management.
- Advocate proactive conservation and land management practices by aligning Army training land management priorities with the Army training and readiness priorities.
The four major components of the ITAM program are Training Requirements Integration (TRI); Range and Training Land Assessment (RTLA); Land Rehabilitation and Maintenance (LRAM); and Sustainable Range Awareness (SRA). These components combine to provide the means to understand how the Army's training requirements impact land management practices, what the impact of training is on the land, how to mitigate and repair the impact, and communicate the ITAM message to soldiers and the public.
