FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Major Kirk Gohlke, Public Affairs Officer, U.S. Army, Alaska, telephone: (907) 384–1542; facsimile: (907) 384– 2060; e-mail: kirk.gohle@richardson.army.mil. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: U.S. Army, Alaska (USARAK) will construct and operate two state-of-the-art, fully automated and instrumented combat training facilities. This involves the construction and operation of a BAX (rural environment) and CACTF (urban environment) at Eddy Drop Zone. The BAX will encompass approximately 2,872 acres and the CACTF will encompass 1,184 acres of land suitable for the construction and operation of these ranges. In addition, surface danger zones are required for both the BAX and CACTF. The purpose of the action is to provide year-round, fully automated, comprehensive, and realistic training and range facilities, which, in combination, will support company (200 Soldiers) through battalion (800 Soldiers) combat team training events. The construction and operation of a BAX and CACTF at Eddy Drop Zone will support required higher levels of realistic combat in both urban and rural environments. Automated facilities will be used to provide timely feedback that is critical to effective training. The BAX and CACTF will fully train Soldiers for war by maintaining unit readiness and availability in recognition of the threats facing our nation and the world today. The BAX will support company combat team live-fire operations on a fully automated rural maneuver range and will provide for joint combined arms team training with other Department of Defense organizations. The CACTF will support battalion combat team training and joint operations in an urban environment. The ROD includes a description of environmental and cultural resource management, monitoring and mitigation programs.

E-mail: richard.orrison@ee.doe.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Solid-State Lighting: Commercialization Support Pathway I. SSL R&D Investment Leads to Technology Commercialization The U.S. Department of Energy has made a long-term commitment to develop and support commercialization of SSL for general illumination, including sources, fixtures, electronics, and controls. In August 2005, President Bush signed the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (EPACT 2005), the first national energy plan in more than a decade. Title IX (Research and Development) of the Energy Act directs the Secretary of Energy to carry out a Next Generation Lighting Initiative (NGLI) to support research, development, demonstration, and commercial application activities for SSL. The Secretary is also directed to carry out research, development, demonstration, and commercial application activities through competitively selected awards. The EPACT 2005 authorizes $50 million to the NGLI for each fiscal year 2007 through 2009, with extended authorization to allocate $50 million for each of the fiscal years 2010 to 2013. The actual Congressional appropriation for the NGLI will not be determined until fiscal year 2007. This public R&D investment serves the ultimate goal to successfully commercialize the technologies in the buildings sector, where lighting accounts for more than 20 percent of total electricity use. Potential benefits are enormous if SSL technology achieves projected price and performance levels: • By 2025, SSL could displace general illumination light sources such as incandescent and fluorescent lamps, decreasing national energy consumption for lighting by about 0.45 quadrillion Btus (quads) annually, that is, enough E:\FR\FM\02AUN1.SGM 02AUN1
