Download Draft EA

The U.S. Air Force has prepared a draft Environmental Assessment (EA) to consider and document potential environmental effects resulting from two proposed suborbital rocket launches at the planned Kodiak Launch Complex. The launches would support the atmospheric interceptor technology (ait) program to develop, integrate and demonstrate lightweight vehicle technologies within the Earth's atmosphere.

The published draft EA is available for public review and comment through Nov. 2, 1997, to ensure that it includes and addresses community concerns. Interested parties can access the document at all Kodiak-area high schools, colleges and public libraries (see addresses). A copy of this draft EA and Attachment 1 to the EA, in the Adobe Acrobat format, can also be downloaded here:

Interested parties can submit written comments regarding the potential for environmental impact from these proposed launches to:
