McRae, Office of Research and Technology Applications, e-mail: susan.mcrae@smdc.army.mil; (256) 955–1501. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The invention pertains to detecting reflected energy and, more particularly, to radar and ladar systems with enhanced range. A reflected energy detecting device includes a transmitter for transmitting an electromagnetic signal and a receiver for receiving a reflected electromagnetic signal. An antenna connected with the transmitter and the receiver radiates the electromagnetic signal and captures the reflected electromagnetic signal. The antenna may be movable. A main controller controls operation of the transmitter and the receiver and the movement of the antenna. The reflected energy detecting device may further include at least one platform to support a remote reflector that is dimensioned and configured to redirect the transmitted electromagnetic signal in a desired direction, and a platform controller that communicates with the main controller and maintains alignment between the remote reflector and the antenna.

ACTION: Notice of intent. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Draft Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (DPEIS) will evaluate the overall impacts of various alternatives identified in a Long Island Sound Dredged Material Management Plan (LIS DMMP) for management of dredged material in the Long Island Sound (LIS) region. The overall goal of the LIS DMMP is to develop a comprehensive plan for dredged material management in Long Island Sound using a broadbased public process that protects the environment based on best scientific data and analysis, while meeting society’s need for safe and economically viable navigation for water-based commerce, transportation, national security, and other public purposes. The LIS DMMP will identify potential environmentally acceptable, practicable management plans that can be utilized by the Corps of Engineers (Corps) in maintaining Federal navigation projects, as well as various non-Corps dredging proponents in their analysis of options to manage non-Corps dredging projects. Some alternative disposal methods may be implemented on the basis of the PEIS, while others may require additional analysis at the project level. As specific alternatives are put in place to implement a given management option, more detailed National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) documents may be prepared by the Corps and other Federal agencies, and such NEPA documents will evaluate specific impacts from implementing a particular management option. ADDRESSES: U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District, 696 Virginia Road, Concord, MA 01742– 2751. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Questions about the proposed action and DPEIS can be answered by: Mr. Mike Keegan, (978) 318–8657, e-mail: Michael.f.keegan@usace.army.mil. The Governors of Connecticut and New York, in a joint letter dated February 8, 2005, requested the Corps to develop a regional DMMP for the LIS region.
