SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Due to circumstances beyond the control of the Designated Federal Officer and the Department of Defense, the 2017 Defense Science Board Summer Study Task Force on Countering Anti-access Systems with Longer Range and Standoff Capabilities (‘‘the Long Range Effects Summer Study Task Force’’) was unable to provide public notification of sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:36 Jan 23, 2017 Jkt 241001 its meetings on January 26–27, 2017, as required by 41 CFR 102–3.150(a). Accordingly, the Advisory Committee Management Officer for the Department of Defense, pursuant to 41 CFR 102– 3.150(b), waives the 15-calendar day notification requirement. These meetings are being held under the provisions of the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA) of 1972 (5 U.S.C. Appendix, as amended), the Government in the Sunshine Act of 1976 (5 U.S.C. 552b, as amended), and 41 CFR 102–3.150. The mission of the Defense Science Board is to provide independent advice and recommendations on matters relating to the Department of Defense’s (DoD) scientific and technical enterprise. The objective of the Long Range Effects Summer Study Task Force is to explore new defense systems and technology that will enable cost effective power projection that relies on the use of longer stand-off distances than current capabilities. System components may be deployed on manned or unmanned platforms with a range of potential autonomous capabilities. Use of cost reducing technology and advanced production practices from defense and commercial industry may be a major part of the strategy for deploying adequate numbers of weapons. The study should investigate and analyze all of these areas and recommend preferred system options. This two-day session will focus on providing general threat briefings, to include country briefings and respective threat system capabilities. United States capabilities will also be briefed by the Joint Staff and the military services. The organizations briefing include the Defense Intelligence Agency, Missile Defense Agency, U.S. Navy and U.S. Air Force. Additionally the DSB will present recently completed studies to include: Air Dominance, Next Generation Unmanned Undersea Systems and Ballistic Missile and Cruise Missile Defense. In accordance with section 10(d) of the FACA and 41 CFR 102–2.155, the DoD has determined that the Long Range Effects Summer Study Task Force meeting 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 the meeting 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 national security concern. Such PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 classified material is so intertwined with the unclassified material 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 Long Range Effects Summer Study Task Force members at any time regarding its mission or in response to the stated agenda of a planned meeting. Individuals submitting a written statement must submit their statement to the DSB’s DFO—Ms. Karen D.H. Saunders, Executive Director, Defense Science Board, 3140 Defense Pentagon, Room 3B888A, Washington, DC 20301, via email at karen.d.saunders.civ@mail.mil or via phone at (703) 571–0079 at any point, however, if a written statement is not received at least 3 calendar days prior to the meeting, which is the subject of this notice, then it may not be provided to or considered by the Long Range Effects Summer Study Task Force. The DFO will review all submissions with the Long Range Effects Summer Study Task Force CoChairs and ensure they are provided to Long Range Effects Summer Study Task Force members prior to the end of the two-day meeting on January 27, 2017.
