Name of Project

Installation Support Services Geographically Separated Locations (ISS GSL)

Project Locations
Wake Island; King Salmon, Alaska; Sheyma, Alaska; Anchorage, Alaska; Honolulu, Hawaii


Pacific Air Forces Regional Support Center on Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska

Description of Work

The three Geographically Separated Locations (GSL) span the North Pacific Ocean. Wake Island, a small coral atoll is located approximately 2,300 miles west of Honolulu, Hawaii. Wake Island holds great strategic importance for its location and active airfield. Eareckson Air Station is located on Shemya Island at the far reaches of the Aleutian Islands approximately 1,500 miles west of Anchorage, Alaska. Eareckson Air Station hosts an active airfield and key missile defense capabilities and infrastructure. King Salmon Divert Airfield is located on the Alaska Peninsula approximately 300 miles due west of Anchorage. The Airfield serves as a remote runway for safe landings when aircraft experience in-flight emergencies. Project offices in Anchorage and Honolulu provide additional logistics support to these locations.  The project team is comprised of over 230 full-time employees who provide Base Operations Services.

Unique Challenges
Logistical resupply is a challenge in these remote military installations accessed only by sea or air.  The corrosive marine environment, climate and extreme weather challenge crews to maintain critical assets.


The GSL Project team forecasts annual bulk resupply of fuel, parts, equipment and food based on operational requirements and preventative maintenance schedules. Corrosion control is scheduled into routine maintenance activities to extend the life of Government and Company owned property. This ensures continuity of operations and reliability of critical assets.
