Abstract:

The Strategic Defense Initiative Organization and its proponents plan to conduct DemonstrationValidation tests of the SBI technology. These tests will demonstrate the ability of the technology to perform the required tasks, and validate a future decision on whether to proceed with Full-Scale Development. DemonstrationValidation tests would be conducted at Eglin Air Force Base, Edwards Air Force Base, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll, National Test Facility, and contractor facilities. Tests would include analyses, simulations, componentassembly tests, and flight tests. This document addresses the potential environmental consequences of the DemonstrationValidation testing of the SBI technology. Keywords Test facilities Environmental impact.
