The purpose of the proposed action is to accommodate current United States Air Force USAF missions by constructing a carriage test facility to the east of Building 847 at Hill Air Force Base AFB. The facility would be used to conduct testing and repair of transfer carriages that are used to hold and transport Minuteman MM stage I motors. The facility would house a reaction mass a weight to be placed on each carriage for testing its ability to perform as intended for a test stand to meet MM loads for stage I motors, and an overhead crane. The proposed action is needed because it is required by weapons safety concerns. A risk assessment code 3 RAC 3 safety violation was identified at the current location, Oasis Building 30024 at the Utah Test and Training Range UTTR. The RAC 3 safety violation is related to lack of sufficient floor space. Additionally, the presence of carriage test equipment is encroaching upon designated fire egress routes.
