- HOME BASING OF THE MQ-25A STINGRAY CARRIER-BASED UNMANNED AIR SYSTEM AT NAVAL BASE VENTURA COUNTY POINT MUGU, CA
- The United States Department of the Navy, in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act, announces the availability of the Final Environmental Assessment (EA) assessing the potential environmental impacts from the Proposed Action to home base a new carrier-based unmanned air system at Naval Base Ventura County Point Mugu, California. This system is known as the MQ- 25A Stingray. 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. This announcement also serves to provide notice of compliance with Executive Order (EO) 11988, "Floodplain Management," and EO 11990, "Protection of Wetlands." The Final EA analyzes the impacts of home basing 20 Stingray air systems and stationing approximately 730 additional personnel plus their family members at Point Mugu; constructing a new hangar, training facilities, and supporting infrastructure; performing air vehicle maintenance; providing training for air vehicle operators and maintainers; and conducting approximately 960 annual MQ- 25A Stingray flight operations.
