Abstract:

The test mission at Edwards AFB is constantly changing. The underlying purpose and need for the project is to support various Air Force test missions at the Edwards AFB Test Complex by updating and enhancing the current test facilities, making optimum use of existing facilities utilities and structures in a cost efficient manner that is consistent with Base priorities while delineating zones of construction which can enhance test capabilities. This EA provides the baseline environmental analysis of facilities, restrictions, and utilities within the developed portions of the Base in anticipation of future test mission requirements. Three action alternatives were considered to update and develop new test mission capabilities at the Edwards AFB Test Complex. The alternatives provide a range of development scenarios while considering standard mission requirements for new test missions, and varying levels of land use constraints.
