The proposed action is to develop, manufacture, and launch an on-orbit operation of a single P91-1ARGOS hereinafter called ARGOS spacecraft. All ARGOS Advanced Research and Global Observation Satellite manufacturing and pre-launch servicing and checkout is carried out in contractor-owned and contractor-operated COCO facilities, not at Vandenberg AFB using what is known as a Ship and Shoot philosophy. The launch of ARGOS will be from Space Launch Complex 2 West SLC-2W at Vandenberg AFB. The environmental impacts of the Delta II launch vehicle are described in detail in the NASAGSFC document Environmental Assessment for the Modification of Space Launch Complex 2 at Vandenberg Air Force Base, California, dated September 1991, and a supplement to that EA dated November 1992. Eight experiments will be conducted for the ARGO S mission.
