NASA Draft Routine Payload
Document Type
EA - Environmental Assessment

Document Description
Note: Ending date 10/12/11 NASA proposes to design, launch, and operate a variety of scientific spacecraft that can be considered routine as defined by NASA's Routine Payload Checklist. These spacecraft would be launched using U.S. domestic expendable launch vehicles whose impacts have been examined in previous EAs and EISs. These existing National Environmental Policy Act documents are incorporated by reference. By meeting the criteria of the RPC and by having no new or substantial environmental impacts or hazards, spacecraft would be considered NASA routine payload and would fall under the scope of this EA for Launch of NASA Routine Payloads on Expendable Launch Vehicles.
