Abstract : The Strategic Defense Initiative Organization (SDIO) and its proponents (the U.S. Army and U.S. Air Force) plan to conduct Demonstration/Validation tests of the six technologies to demonstrate their respective ability to perform their required tasks, and to validate the requirements to determine their feasibility for a future decision on whether to proceed with Full-Scale Development. Demonstration/Validation tests would be conducted at 14 government facilities across the United States and the Republic of the Marshall Islands, and at contractor facilities. Tests would include analyses, simulations, component/assembly tests, and flight tests. This document summarizes the findings expressed in the six Environmental Assessments for Demonstration/Validation testing of the individual technologies, and analyzes the potential cumulative environmental consequences of testing of multiple technologies at a given facility. In the event that any other technology is ready for entry into Demonstration/Validation at a later date, an Environmental Assessment will be prepared for that technology and this summary will be updated.
