The purpose of the Proposed Action is to collect data on a developmental payload by testing range performance and to demonstrate technologies for prospective strike capabilities. Specifically, the FE-1experiment would develop, integrate, and flight test the developmental payload concept to demonstrate the maturity of key technologies. These technologies include precision navigation, guidance and control, and enabling capabilities.The need for the Proposed Action is to provide flight test data and information required by the DoD to provide a basis for ground testing, modeling, and simulation of developmental payload performance applicable to a range of possible FE-1 concepts being studied as a way to inform potential future strike capability determinations.The Proposed Action would be one experimental flight test within a year after signing the Finding of No Significant Impact, if approved. This EAOEA assesses all potential environmental impacts associated with the Proposed Action, any viable alternatives, and the No-Action Alternative, including the analysis of the following resource areas air quality, air space, biological resources, cultural resources, hazardous materials and wastes, noise, public health and safety, and water resources.
