Abstract : The Strategic Defense Initiative Organization (SDIO) and its proponents (U.S. Army and U.S. Air Force) plan to conduct Demonstration/Validation tests of the BM/C3 technology. These tests will demonstrate the ability of the technology to perform the required tasks, and will validate a future decision on whether to proceed with Full-Scale Development. Demonstration/Validation tests would be conducted at the Advanced Research Center, Electronic Systems Division, National Test Facility, Rome Air Development Center, Nevada Test Site, Harry Diamond Laboratories, and at contractor facilities. Tests would include analyses, simulations, and component/assembly tests. This document addresses the potential environmental consequences of the Demonstration/Validation testing of the BM/C3 technology.
