Download as PDF wwhite on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 68 / Monday, April 10, 2006 / Notices capacity to the Coast Guard. When fully implemented, the interoperable Deepwater system will comprise three classes of new cutters and their associated small boats, a new fixed-wing manned aircraft fleet, a combination of new and upgraded helicopters, and both cutter-based and land-based unmanned air vehicles (UAVs). All of these highly capable assets are linked with Command, Control, Communications and Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) systems, and are supported by an integrated logistics system. These new assets, which possess common systems and technologies, common operational concepts, and a common logistics base will give the Coast Guard a significantly improved ability to detect and identify all activities in the maritime arena, a capability known as ‘‘maritime domain awareness,’’ as well as the improved ability to intercept and engage those activities that pose a direct threat to U.S. sovereignty and security. The NSCs will be the flagships of the IDS, capable of meeting all maritime security mission needs and operating with a maximum range of 12,000 nautical miles and up to 60 days continuously without replenishment. The existing base on CGI in Alameda, CA provides the shore support necessary to meet the logistical requirements of four large cutters. This existing support includes security considerations, easy access for Coast Guard personnel, administrative and support buildings and services, and required shore ties to service in-port cutters. The Coast Guard plans to homeport four NSCs at CGI in Alameda, California. The four NSCs would replace, on a one-for-one basis, the four aging 378-foot High-Endurance Cutters (HECs) currently stationed in Alameda. In addition to the proposed vessel homeporting, minor improvements to the existing waterfront pier and construction of a new 18,000 sq. ft. administration building would be required at the existing base on CGI in Alameda to provide adequate shore-side support. No other actions or projects are anticipated at this time to support this proposed homeporting plan. The USCG is preparing an Environmental Assessment (EA) to comply with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969 (section 102[2][c]) and its implementing regulations at 40 Code of Federal Regulations, part 1500, and other related environmental laws, regulations, and Executive Orders. The EA will evaluate the potential direct, indirect and cumulative impacts VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:48 Apr 07, 2006 Jkt 208001 associated with the NSC homeporting plan.
