Two types of land classes occur in both the NevadaUtah and the TexasNew Mexico areas that are being studied for possible deployment of the M-X system. Wilderness areas, including areas now under review for possible additionals in the wilderness program, are areas legally excluded from M-X deployment. Significant natural areas include a variety of special designation areas such as national and state parks, monuments, grasslands, recreation areas, natural landmarks, wildlife refugees, and unique and nationally significant wildlife ecosystems as well as special use areas such as long term research areas of universities and government agencies. While not legally mandated, it is Air Force policy to avoid deployment of M-X system components in these areas to the maximum degree possible. Author
