Abstract : This EA documents the potential environmental impacts of conducting two Hypersonic Technology Vehicle 2 (HTV-2) flight tests to support development and demonstration of hypersonic technologies. Both HTV-2 missions would be launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base, California, using existing rocket booster systems. Following booster separation, the HTV-2 would glide at hypersonic velocities in the upper atmosphere, prior to an ocean impact near US Army Kwajalein Atoll/Ronald Reagan Ballistic Missile Defense Test Site in the Republic of the Marshall Islands.
