Abstract : The President's Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI) announced on March 23, 1983, initiated an effective ballistic missile defense system. Subsequently, the Strategic Defense Initiative Organization (SDIO) was established to plan, organize, coordinate, direct, and enhance the research and testing of strategic defense technologies. Future implementation of a strategic defense system would be based, in large part, on the SDIO research program. The National Test Bed (NTB) and National Test Facility(NTF) are key elements of the SDIO's plans to conduct tests and experiments. The purpose of this document is to provide the SDIO and NTBJPO with a description of the communications system required to link the network of NTB facilities to the NTF. This DOPAA was prepared as part of the SDIO Environmental Impact Analysis Process (EIAP) described in the SDIO EIAP framework document of September 1987
