Abstract : This EA documents the potential environmental impacts of conducting a single demonstration flight test of the Conventional Strike Missile (CSM). The CSM Demonstration flight test vehicle would be launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base, California, using an existing rocket booster system. Following booster separation, the Payload Delivery Vehicle would glide at hypersonic velocities in the upper atmosphere, prior to a land or ocean impact at the US Army Kwajalein Atoll/Reagan Test Site in the Republic of the Marshall Islands.
