Abstract:

The U.S. Air Force, Headquarters Air Combat Command ACC proposes to add up to 48 medium- and high-altitude MQ-1 and MQ-9 Predator unmanned aerial vehicles UAVs to the current inventory of 40 Predators at ISAF AF. The proposal would also construct new facilities, upgrade existing facilities, add 400 feet to Runway 1331 and increase personnel. Four alternatives, including the No-Action Alternative, were analyzed in detail in the environmental assessment EA. The proposed mix of UAVs at ISAFAF for each alternative is presented below. Personnel changes would vary depending on the alternative an increase of 101 personnel under Alternative A, an increase of 143 personnel under Alternative B, a reduction of 560 personnel under Alternative C, and no personnel changes under the No-Action Alternative. A total of 30 construction projects to support the bed down, including a 400 foot extension of Runway 1331 at ISAFAF and new munitions support structures at Nellis Air Force Base NAFB would be accomplished under Alternatives A and B. Under Alternative C, seven construction projects at ISAF AF, including the extension of Runway 1331 would occur. No construction would occur under the No Action Alternative.
