Multistakeholder Process To Develop Consumer Data Privacy Code of Conduct Concerning Mobile Application Transparency, 38597 [2012-15767]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 125 / Thursday, June 28, 2012 / Notices developed a 105-mm training round (TR) that contains less than 10 percent of the amount of explosive material (0.16 kg) as compared to the ‘‘Full-Up’’ (FU) 105-mm round. The TR was developed as one method to mitigate effects on marine life during nighttime AS gunnery exercises when visibility at the water surface is poor. However, the TR cannot be used in the daytime because the amount of explosive material is insufficient to be detected from the aircraft. To establish the test target area, two Mk–25 flares are deployed or a target is towed into the center of a 9.3 km cleared area on the water’s surface. A typical gunship mission lasts approximately 5 hrs without refueling and 6 hrs when air-toair refueling is accomplished. Water ranges within the EGTTR that are typically used for AS gunnery operations are located in the GOM offshore from the Florida Panhandle (areas W–151A, W151B, W–151C, and W–151D as shown in Figure 1–9 in the Eglin AFB application). Data indicate that W–151A (Figure 1–10 in the Eglin AFB application) is the most frequently used water range due to its proximity to Hurlburt Field, but activities may occur anywhere within the EGTTR. Eglin AFB proposes to conduct AS gunnery missions year round during both daytime and nighttime hours. Additional information on the Eglin AFB training operations is contained in the application, which is available upon request (see ADDRESSES). Information Solicited srobinson on DSK4SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Interested persons may submit information, suggestions, and comments related to the U.S. Air Force’s request (see ADDRESSES). All information, suggestions, and comments related to the U.S. Air Force’s PSW and AS gunnery testing and training operations request and NMFS’ potential development and implementation of regulations governing the incidental taking of marine mammals by Eglin AFB’s PSW and AS gunnery testing and training operations will be considered by NMFS in developing, if appropriate, the most effective regulations governing the issuance of Letters of Authorization.
