SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title; Associated Form; and OMB Number: Defense Biometric Identification Records System; OMB Control Number 0702–0127. Needs and Uses: The DoD Automated Biometric Identification System (ABIS) is an authoritative biometrics data repository that processes, matches, and stores biometric identity information data, collected by global U.S. forces, during the course of military operations. Biometric data may also be collected for use in field identification and recovery of persons, or their physical remains, who have been captured, detained, missing, prisoners of war (POW), or personnel recovered from hostile control. The information processed by DoD ABIS (biometric, biographic, behavioral, and contextual data) is collected by DoD military personnel worldwide using hand-held biometric collection devices across the full range of military operations for DoD warfighting, intelligence, law enforcement, security, force protection, base access, homeland defense, counterterrorism, business enterprise purposes, and also in information environment mission areas. It also includes biometric data from individuals collected from interagency or foreign partners’ data repositories. Affected Public: Individuals or households. Annual Burden Hours: 201,872.917. Number of Respondents: 2,422,475. Responses per Respondent: 1. Annual Responses: 2,422,475. Average Burden per Response: 5 minutes. Frequency: As Required. The information collected and processed by DoD ABIS is shared, accessed, and leveraged by DoD partners, U.S. Government inter-agency agency and departmental stakeholders, and approved multi-national partners, such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) for intelligence, counterterrorism, military force protection, national security, and law enforcement purposes. DoD provides collected and processed information to the FBI/Terrorist Screening Center (TSC) to place individuals on National PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Watchlists. Required biometric fields for every record include: Name, ten (10) fingerprints, and two (2) iris scans. All other data fields in DoD ABIS, such as Social Security Number (SSN), are optional and vary based on each record and situation. Dated: May 3, 2021. Aaron T.

ACTION: Notice of availability. AGENCY: The Missile Defense Agency (MDA), as the lead agency, announces the availability of the Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Long Range Discrimination Radar (LRDR) located at Clear Air Force Station (CAFS), Alaska. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the Department of the Air Force (DAF) are cooperating agencies to this Final EIS. DATES: MDA will not issue a final decision on the proposed action for a minimum of 30 days after the date that the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) publishes its Notice of Availability (NOA) in the Federal Register. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Ryan Keith, MDA Public Affairs, at 256– 450–1599 or by email: lrdr.info@ mda.mil. The Final EIS for the Long Range Discrimination Radar Operations at Clear Air Force Station, Alaska is available online at the MDA’s website at: https://www.mda.mil/system/lrdr. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Department of Defense’s NOA (85 FR 68314) for the Draft EIS was published in the Federal Register on October 28, 2020, and the USEPA’s NOA (ER–FRL– 9053–6) for the Draft EIS was published in the Federal Register on October 30, 2020, which provided notice that the Draft EIS was available for comment from October 30, 2020 to December 21, 2020. MDA hosted a telephone public meeting, December 2, 2020, and an SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 24599 online open house to share information about the proposed action and alternatives and allow the public to provide comments and ask questions. Additionally, the public was able to submit comments by facsimile, postal mail, or via a project email address. MDA received comments on the Draft EIS from ten individuals or organizations, one of which commented twice. Commenters requested changes to the proposed Restricted Areas, more information about communication methods if Restricted Areas are activated at unscheduled times, and mitigation for climate change and air quality. Comments on the Draft EIS were considered and incorporated as appropriate into the Final EIS. Comments resulted in the addition of clarifying text and an update to the impacts to airspace based on information presented during the FAA Safety Risk Management Panel’s analysis. However, these changes did not significantly change the alternatives or analysis presented in the EIS. Background: In response to the Congressional mandate to deploy the LRDR, MDA completed a siting analysis for the LRDR, which selected CAFS out of 50 candidate Department of Defense installations in Alaska. In June 2016, MDA and DAF prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA), to evaluate the potential environmental impacts associated with the construction and operation of the LRDR at CAFS. The 2016 EA resulted in a Finding of No Significant Impact, and construction of the LRDR began in July 2017. Since that time, due to emerging threats, MDA proposes to modify the LRDR operational requirements and procedures to reflect continuous operations. Due to the proposed changes to LRDR operations, airspace restrictions at CAFS are necessary to ensure that aircraft would not encounter high intensity radiation fields (HIRF) resulting from the LRDR operations that exceed FAA’s HIRF certification standards for aircraft electrical and electronic systems. The proposed airspace restrictions include expanding the existing Restricted Area (R–2206) at CAFS by adding six new Restricted Areas. The preferred alternative is to operate the LRDR continuously under the changed operational concept and to implement the associated proposed airspace restrictions as described in the Proposed Action analyzed in the Final EIS. The EIS also analyzes the No Action Alternative. Under the No Action Alternative, the LRDR would be operated in a manner that would E:\FR\FM\07MYN1.SGM 07MYN1
