Document Description
The U.S. Air Force proposes to conduct integration and developmental testing of high power microwave (HPM) systems at Edwards Air Force Base (AFB), California, and within restricted area R-2515. HPM is a directed energy system. All targets will be physically located on or above Edwards AFB, inside restricted area R-2515. Up to 100 acres could be designated for use; however, each target area would be limited to 5 acres. Requirements: Up to 100 ground test hours in 2006, 600 ground test hours in 2007, and 672 flight and ground test hours (180 flights [including chase aircraft] and 48 ground tests) each year from 2008 to 2012. BMP would be implemented to ensure no significant impacts would occur.
