As part of the Base Realignment and Closure Commission's decision of 1993, Naval Air Station Dallas was relocated to the previous site of Carswell Air Force Base, Fort Worth, Texas. The new base is named NAS Fort Worth, Joint Reserve Base (JRB) at Carswell.
When commissioned on 1 October 1994, this installation was the first Joint Service Reserve Base in the United States. It occupies the site and most of the facilities of the former Carswell AFB, an Air Force bomber/tanker installation selected for closure under the 1991 BRAC round.
Some significant upgrades were necessary to prepare it for its new role as a Joint Reserve Base. In particular, DON commissioned a radar equipped ATC facility 55 to serve the base. This facility has been delegated limited airspace by the FAA Dallas/Ft. Worth TRACON to manage radar traffic pattern and final approach operations. Additional airfield support systems were commissioned, including Fresnel lens, FCLP marking and lights, and a marked and lighted assault landing strip for the tenant 136 th Airlift Wing, Texas Air National Guard.
The base, under the oversight of the Commander Naval Air Reserve Forces, now hosts a variety of fighter/attack and airlift units from the reserve components of Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force. Airfield operating procedures and equipment (e.g., PAR and ILS) reflect a combination of service requirements, although as the operators of the local ATC system, DON imposes Navy procedures as the operations standard.
