Document Description
Draft Environmental Assessment of the implementation of Phantom Space Corporation's Daytona-E and Laguna-E launch program and the associated construction of a new launch facility at Space Launch Complex (SLC) 5 on Vandenberg Space Force Base (VSFB). SLC-5 is a decommissioned, demolished launch site on south VSFB. Phantom would construct two launch pads and a Horizontal Integration Facility at the site and install utilities and firebreaks. To meet fire safety standards, access roads around SLC-5 would require improvements and repairs. Phantom proposes to perform up to a combined total of 48 launches of the Daytona-E and the Laguna-E from SLC-5 annually. In addition, Phantom would conduct up to 48 vertical tests (static fire) annually.
