Due to circumstances beyond the control of the Designated Federal Officer and the Department of Defense, the Defense Science Board (DSB) was unable to provide the 15-calendar day public notification of subcommittee meetings of the 2016 DSB Summer Study Task Force on Capabilities for Constrained Military Operations scheduled for August 15 through August 19, 2016; August 22 through August 24, 2016; August 25, 2016; and August 26, 2016, at the Arnold and Mabel Beckman Center, 100 Academy Drive, Irvine, California. Accordingly, the Advisory Committee Management Officer for the Department of Defense, pursuant to 41 CFR 102–3.150(b), waives the 15calendar day notification requirement for each meeting—August 15 through August 19, 2016; August 22 through August 24, 2016; August 25, 2016; and August 26, 2016. The mission of the Defense Science Board is to advise the Secretary of Defense and the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics on scientific and technical matters as they affect the perceived needs of the Department of Defense. The objective of the 2016 Summer Study on Capabilities for Constrained Military Operations is to assess the military planning, shaping, and operational activities that address potential threats to U.S. interests and strive to establish stability in critical regions of the world that do not rise to the level of full-scale military operations. Areas of consideration will include an assessment of current planning processes within Department of Defense (DoD) Policy, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Combatant Commands, and the Intelligence Community with a focus on the period before significant hostilities begin. In accordance with section 10(d) of the FACA and 41 CFR 102–2.155, the DoD has determined that the DSB meetings will be closed to the public. Specifically, the Under Secretary of Defense (Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics), in consultation with the DoD Office of General Counsel, has determined in writing that all sessions will be closed to the public because matters covered by 5 U.S.C. 552b(c)(1) will be considered. The determination is based on the consideration that it is expected that discussions throughout will involve classified matters of VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:13 Aug 19, 2016 Jkt 238001 national security concern. Such classified material is so intertwined with the unclassified material and nonproprietary information that it cannot reasonably be segregated into separate discussions without defeating the effectiveness and meaning of the overall meetings. To permit the meetings to be open to the public would preclude discussion of such matters and would greatly diminish the ultimate utility of the DSB’s findings or recommendations to the Secretary of Defense and to the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics. In accordance with section 10(a)(3) of the FACA and 41 CFR 102–3.105(j) and 102–3.140, interested persons may submit a written statement for consideration by the Defense Science Board at any time regarding its mission or in response to the stated agenda of a planned meetings.

    The mission of the Defense Science Board is to advise the Secretary

of the 2016 Summer Study on Capabilities for Constrained Military 
Operations is to assess the military planning, shaping, and operational 
activities that address potential threats to U.S. interests and strive

consideration will include an assessment of current planning processes 
within Department of Defense (DoD) Policy, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, 
Combatant Commands, and the Intelligence Community with a focus on the 
period before significant hostilities begin.
    In accordance with section 10(d) of the FACA and 41 CFR 102-2.155, 
the DoD has determined that the DSB meetings will be closed to the

preclude discussion of such matters and would greatly diminish the 
ultimate utility of the DSB's findings or recommendations to the 
Secretary of Defense and to the Under Secretary of Defense for 
Acquisition, Technology and Logistics.
    In accordance with section 10(a)(3) of the FACA and 41 CFR 102-
