Strategic Defense Initiative Demonstration/Validation Program Environmental Assessments Summary,
STRATEGIC DEFENSE INITIATIVE ORGANIZATION WASHINGTON DC SYSTEMS ENGINEERING
Pagination or Media Count:
The Strategic Defense Initiative Organization SDIO and its proponents the U.S. Army and U.S. Air Force plan to conduct DemonstrationValidation tests of the six technologies to demonstrate their respective ability to perform their required tasks, and to validate the requirements to determine their feasibility for a future decision on whether to proceed with Full-Scale Development. DemonstrationValidation tests would be conducted at 14 government facilities across the United States and the Republic of the Marshall Islands, and at contractor facilities. Tests would include analyses, simulations, componentassembly tests, and flight tests. This document summarizes the findings expressed in the six Environmental Assessments for DemonstrationValidation testing of the individual technologies, and analyzes the potential cumulative environmental consequences of testing of multiple technologies at a given facility. In the event that any other technology is ready for entry into DemonstrationValidation at a later date, an Environmental Assessment will be prepared for that technology and this summary will be updated.
