MISSILE DEFENSE AGENCY RECORD OF ENVIRONMENTAL CONSIDERATION

Project Title: AN/TPY-2 Radar Deployment at the Ted Stevens Marine Research Institute (TSMRI) on the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Site in Juneau, Alaska in Support of Flight Test Ground-Based Interceptor (FTG)-04.

Description of Proposed Action: The proposed action is to site, transport, set up, calibrate, and operate the AN/TPY-2 radar (previously designated as the Forward Based X-Band Transportable [FBX-T] Radar) at the TSMRI to allow MDA to locate and track target missiles launched from the Kodiak Launch Complex as part of the FTG-04 test event.

The proposed site is located approximately 29 kilometers (18 miles) northwest of Juneau, Alaska. The site is a former rock quarry situated on a bluff overlooking Favorite Channel and currently consists of a research facility (i.e., laboratory and administrative space), graveled grounds, and paved parking areas. The proposed radar equipment layout is shown in Exhibit 1.

Improvements to the proposed NOAA site would consist of:

  • Installation of temporary privacy fencing up to 2.4 meters (8 feet tall)

  • Installation of temporary 3.6 meters tall (12 feet) noise attenuation barriers

  • Grading, filling, and compaction of 0.4 hectare (1 acre) to 0.8 hectare (2 acres) hardstand area

  • Installation of two 1.8-meter (6-foot) satellite dishes for communications

  • Installation of temporary lighting

  • Installation of grounding and lightning protection poles approximately 8 meters (25 feet) tall

  • Trimming and/or topping of trees in approximately 0.4 hectare (1 acre) of coastal fringe forest

  • Development of a gravel parking lot for up to 15 vehicles, and

  • Development of a gravel access road from the NOAA driveway, approximately 30.5 meters (100 feet) long.

The radar system and equipment would be located and operated to minimize disruption to the on-going activities at the TSMRI facility.
