Abstract : This Environmental Assessment documents the environmental analysis of implementing the Orbital/Sub-Orbital Program (OSP), which would provide enhanced capability and flexibility to the development of space launch and target vehicles using excess Minuteman II and Peacekeeper rocket motors (including use of commercial upper stages) to meet a wide variety of mission requirements. It is expected that all OSP launches would be conducted from an existing Government range and/or commercial spaceport located at Vandenberg Air Force Base, CA; Kodiak Launch Complex, AK; Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, FL; and Wallops Flight Facility, VA.
