Abstract : Environmental Assessment of the effects of relocating a SCOUT missile launcher from a dilapidated launch complex at VAFB, refurbishing it for use at Pacific Missile Range Facility in HI. Significant issue was that the Launcher was a historic property. This effect was mitigated through consultation with the State Historic Preservation Officer (attached to EA). EA concludes with a FONSI (finding of no significant impact), signed by base Vice Commander, thus precluding need for an EIS.
