Document Description
Notice of Availability of the Draft Environmental Assessment. Also available for review at http://www.nepa.navy.mil/stingray The Navy proposes to establish facilities and functions at Naval Base Ventura County Point Mugu, California to support West Coast home basing and operations of the MQ-25A Stingray Carrier based Unmanned Air System (Stingray CBUAS). Under the Proposed Action, the Navy would home base 20 Stingray CBUAS; construct a hangar, training facilities, and supporting infrastructure; perform air vehicle maintenance; provide training for air vehicle operators and maintainers; conduct approximately 960 Stingray CBUAS annual flight operations; and station approximately 730 personnel, plus their family members. The purpose of the Proposed Action is to base a new West Coast squadron designed to enhance aircraft carrier capability and versatility for the Joint Forces Commander through the integration of a persistent, sea-based, multi-mission aerial refueling and intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance unmanned aerial system into the carrier air wing (CVW). The need for the Proposed Action is primarily to extend the range and reach of the CVW on the West Coast to meet and pace current and future threats, with secondary recovery refueling and intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance capabilities, in support of national defense objectives and policies.
