Abstract:

The U.S. Navy has prepared this Environmental AssessmentOverseas Environmental Assessment EAOEA to evaluate and disclose the environmental consequences of updating the capabilities of the Pacific Missile Range Facility PMRF, Kauai, HI to support future tests of Ballistic Missile Defense intercept technologies. The Proposed Action for this EAOEA is to further enhance the intercept capabilities of missile defense tests at PMRF. The Proposed Action would support and maintain future Department of Defense Army, Navy, Missile Defense Agency, and other potential customers research, development, test, and evaluation activities, and associated range capabilities including hardware and infrastructure improvements. The Proposed Action would also include testing defensive missile systems such as the Aegis Ashore Missile Defense program, which would adapt the Aegis Standard Missile and ANSPY-1 Radar for land-based operations. These programs would involve the placement of additional landbased systems at PMRF, including required missile launcher, radar, and support facilities.
