- Boost-Back & Landing of the Falcon 9 First Stage at SLC-4 West VAFB, CA & Offshore Contingency Option
- Note: 1 CD The Proposed Action is Space Exploration Technologies Corporation's (SpaceX's) project on VAFB (Federal land). SpaceX now operates the Falcon Launch Vehicle Program at SLC-4E on VAFB. SpaceX proposes using first stage recovery (boost-back and landing) by returning the Falcon 9 First Stage to SLC-4W for potential reuse up to six times per year. The Proposed Action includes: infrastructure improvements at SLC-4W; the boost-back maneuver (in-air), return flight and landing of the Falcon 9 First Stage on the new SLC-4W pad, the boost-back and landing of the Falcon 9 First Stage on a barge specifically designed for the landing.
