Document Description
The proposed action is to test and evaluate high energy lasers from various platforms on the ground and in the air against selected targets on Edwards AFB. Up to 100 acres could be used as target sites or firing points (limited to 5 acres per site) on the base and within the precision impact range area. Airborne platforms would remain in the R-2508 Complex special use airspace and be above 3,000 feet AGL except for approximately 5 percent of the flight test activities. Requirements: Up to approximately 394 flights test and 24 ground tests would occur per year from 2006 to 2010. BMP would be implemented to ensure that no significant impacts would occur.
