Agency: Department of Defense, Department of the Air Force, Air Force Department
In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA, 42 United States Code [U.S.C.] 4321-4347), the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) NEPA Regulations (40 Code of Federal Regulations [CFR] Parts 1500-1508), and the United States Air Force's (USAF) Environmental Impact Analysis Process (EIAP, 32 CFR Part 989), the Air Force is preparing an EIS to consider the proposed action of establishing the CBAT program. This NOI describes the Air Force's proposed alternatives, scoping process, and identifies the Air Force's point of contact. As part of the proposal, the Air Force will analyze potential environmental impacts associated with the proposed development of administrative, instructional, and living areas (referred to as the CBAT Campus) for CBAT students and instructors, as well as utilization of areas for ground training operations. Purpose: The purpose of this action is for AETC to establish a CBAT course in order to further expand ground combat skills and give all Airmen a baseline or common skill set. The course would be implemented in three Phases, beginning with Phase I, which would train approximately 1,353 Airmen. Phase II would add 6,365 students, and Phase III provides training for an additional 6,692 Airmen. Full implementation of CBAT would result in training approximately 14,410 Airmen annually in combat small arms firing, basics of land navigation, small unit tactics, and combative skills, along with a daily physical training regimen. The average daily number of personnel that would be present for CBAT at full implementation (to include instructors, base support, and students) would be approximately 2,600. CBAT would be held year-round, with each course lasting 25 days, 10 hours per day, Monday through Friday. Throughout the initial implementation of each phase, personnel, facilities and infrastructure, and field training areas would be added to the selected installation. The end of Phase III would include a total of 166 new buildings at 124,192 square meters added to the installation. Additionally, by Phase III, approximately 9,000 acres (approximately 36.5 square km) of land would be required for CBAT field training in standardized basic small unit tactics, such as how to react to an enemy ambush (which would include the use of blank-fire ammunition and simulated munitions) and practical day and night land navigation training. Alternatives: The Air Force used a multi-disciplined team (e.g., trainers, civil engineers, environmental engineers, and attorneys) to develop criteria for choosing where the CBAT course would be located. Applying the selection criteria in stages narrowed the alternatives first to 64 and later to just 3 Air Force installations located within the Continental United States. Those 3 installations are Arnold Air Force Base (AFB) in Tennessee, Barksdale AFB in Louisiana, and Moody AFB in Georgia. These three bases and the no action alternative are the alternatives that will be evaluated in the EIS. There is sufficient area on Arnold AFB and Barksdale AFB to support the campus and field training areas. There is insufficient land available to support the field training requirements on Moody AFB, so selection of Moody would necessitate acquiring additional land by purchase or lease. The no action alternative will evaluate current conditions and trends, projected into the future, for comparative purposes. Scoping: In order to effectively define the full range of issues to be evaluated in the EIS, the Air Force will determine the scope of the document (i.e., what will be covered, and in what detail) by soliciting scoping comments from interested state and Federal agencies and the interested public via this Federal Register and notices in the local areas of concern. Comments should be forwarded to the address below, by the date indicated. The Air Force will also hold a series of scoping meetings to further solicit input concerning the scope of the proposed action and alternatives.

Proposed Navy Air-to-Ground Training at Avon Park Air Force Range, FL
Document Number: E6-15183
Type: Notice
Date: 2006-09-13
Agency: Department of Defense, Department of the Air Force, Air Force Department
On August 21, 2006 the United States Air Force signed the Record of Decision (ROD) for the Proposed Navy Air-to-Ground Training at Avon Park Air Force Range, Florida, and has selected Alternative 6 (Utilize Alpha Plus Impact Area for High Explosive Delivery) for implementation. This ROD states the Air Force decision to allow the Navy to conduct all components of air-to-ground ordnance delivery and training at integrated and sustainment levels of Fleet Forces Command's Fleet Readiness Training Program at APAFR, Florida. The proposed action includes an increase in current common elements training and adds air- to-ground readiness training, including delivery of inert and high explosive (HE) ordnance from the Navy's tactical jets. Alternative 6 was selected because it provides the best balance between readiness training and environmental concerns. The Air Force participated as a cooperating agency in preparation of the Navy Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) and ROD, which the AF ROD incorporated by reference. The Navy FEIS and ROD provide detailed information on the Navy proposal and the selection of alternatives that were considered by the Air Force in reaching its decision. The EIS and ROD also describe in detail impacts of the proposed action to the human and the natural environment in 13 resource areas and measures that will be taken to mitigate those impacts. The Air Force decision was based on matters discussed in the ROD, the FEIS, inputs from the public, inputs from regulatory agencies, and other relevant factors. The FEIS was made available on November 18, 2005 in the Federal Register: (Vol. 70, Number 222, page 69967) with a waiting period ending December 18, 2005. The ROD documents only the decision of the Air Force, as a cooperating agency, with regard to the proposed Navy actions analyzed in the FEIS.

Notice of Intent To Prepare an Environmental Impact Statement for the Transfer of Cannon Air Force Base and Melrose Air Force Range From Air Combat Command to Air Force Special Operations Command
Document Number: E6-14031
Type: Notice
Date: 2006-08-24
Agency: Department of Defense, Department of the Air Force, Air Force Department
In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321-4347), the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) NEPA Regulations (40 Code of Federal Regulations [CFR] parts 1500-1508), and the United States Air Force's (USAF) Environmental Impact Analysis Process (EIAP, 32 CFR part 989), the Air Force is preparing an EIS to consider the proposed action of transferring certain Air Force Special Operations equipment and personnel to Cannon AFB. The Air Force proposes to transfer aircraft and personnel from Hurlburt Field, Florida, or other existing operational locations to Cannon AFB, New Mexico. Potential AFSOC assets to beddown include aircraft, weapons systems, equipment, and personnel. Growth is planned through Fiscal Year 2013 at Cannon AFB, and AFSOC proposes to begin utilizing Melrose Air Force Range (AFR), existing training airspace, and existing Military Training Routes from Cannon AFB. This NOI describes the Air Force's scoping process and identifies the Air Force's point of contact. As part of the proposal, the Air Force will analyze potential environmental impacts associated with the proposed aircraft, equipment, and personnel transfer, beddown, training, and operations. Background: On June 19, 2006, in accordance with the 2005 Defense Base Closure and Realignment Commission Report, the SECDEF designated the AFSOC's establishment of the 16th Special Operations Wing at Cannon AFB, beginning October 2007, as the new mission for that base. The EIS will analyze the impacts of that proposed action on the environment. AFSOC is considering what aircraft and other equipment to base at Cannon AFB, how best to utilize existing facilities, and what facilities will need to be modified or built. The proposed action will consider moving approximately 90 aircraft and approximately 3,500 personnel to the base. It is possible that additional facilities may need to be constructed at Melrose AFR. The impacts from the proposed actions will be considered in the EIS. In addition, the EIS will also address alternatives to the proposed action, including a ``no action'' alternative. Because the proposed action is to be taken as the result of the BRAC directive to the SECDEF to designate a new mission for Cannon AFB, the basing/installation alternative will be limited to the confines of Cannon AFB and Melrose AFR; however, the airspace alternatives will include Melrose AFR, surrounding Military Training Routes and Military Operations Areas (MOAs) including the Mt Dora MOA, Pecos MOA Complex and Bronco MOA.

Notice of Intent To Prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (Eis) for the Implementation of the Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) 2005 Decisions and Related Actions at Eglin Air Force Base (AFB), FL
Document Number: E6-12085
Type: Notice
Date: 2006-07-28
Agency: Department of Defense, Department of the Air Force, Air Force Department
Pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, as amended (42 United States Code 4321, et seq.), the Council on Environmental Quality Regulations for implementing procedural provisions of NEPA (40 Code of Federal Regulation (CFR) Parts 1500- 1508), and Air Force policy and procedures (32 CFR Part 989), the Air Force is issuing this notice to advise the public of its intent to prepare an EIS evaluating potential environmental impacts associated with implementation of the 2005 BRAC Commission's recommendations and related actions for Eglin AFB, FL. The 2005 BRAC Commission identified establishment of a Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) Integrated Training Center (ITC), relocation of the Army 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne) [7SFG(A)] from Fort Bragg, North Carolina, and creating an Air Integrated Weapons and Armaments Research, Development and Acquisition, Test and Evaluation Center by relocating the Weapons and Armaments In-Service Engineering Research, Development and Acquisition, and Test and Evaluation from Hill AFB, UT and the Defense Threat Reduction Agency from Fort Belvoir, VA to Eglin AFB. The JSF ITC would be the initial training site for joint Air Force, Navy, and Marine Corps JSF training organizations, as well as the United Kingdom, which is a full partner in this program. The training site would teach aviators and maintenance technicians how to properly operate and maintain 107 F-35 aircraft. As part of this action, F-35 basing, facility construction and renovation, on-site maintenance and use of training airspace are being analyzed. The 7SFG (A)'s principal mission includes planning and executing unconventional warfare, combating terrorism operations, direct action, special reconnaissance, and foreign internal defense. Their realignment to Eglin provides multi-service collocation, joint training synergy with Air Force Special Operations Command and places 7SFG(A) on training lands that match their wartime area of responsibility in Central and South America. Approximately 4,600 personnel are associated with the bed down of both organizations. When including spouses and children, the estimated total of personnel coming to the Eglin AFB area would be 10,000 people. As part of this action, the Air Force is considering various alternatives for facility construction and renovation, land range development, equipment storage and operation, and land-based training/maneuvering to be analyzed in the EIS. The EIS may also include within its scope the potential environmental effects associated with socioeconomics, transportation, noise, cultural resources, water resources, wetlands, floodplains, air quality, land use, infrastructure, and biological resources. The Air Force will conduct scoping meetings to solicit public input concerning this proposal. The scoping process will help identify issues to be addressed in the environmental analysis. The exact dates, times and location(s) will be announced through local media. Oral and written comments presented at the public meetings, as well as written comments received by the Air Force during this scoping period and throughout the EIS process, will be considered in the preparation of the EIS and will be made a part of the administrative record.
Notice of Intent (NOI) To Prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for a Proposed Aircraft Conversion for the Massachusetts National Guard at Westfield-Barnes Airport, Westfield, MA
Document Number: E6-11594
Type: Notice
Date: 2006-07-21
Agency: Department of Defense, Department of the Air Force, Air Force Department
Pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, as amended (42 U.S.C. 4321, et seq.), the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) Regulations for Implementing the Procedural Provisions of NEPA (40 CFR parts 1500-1508), and Air Force policy and procedures (32 CFR part 989), the National Guard Bureau is issuing this notice to advise the public of its intent to prepare an EIS to assess the potential environmental impacts that could result from an aircraft conversion and implementation of the proposed construction and demolition program for the Massachusetts National Guard at Westfield- Barnes Airport in Westfield, Massachusetts. Additionally, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Westfield-Barnes Airport, and the Massachusetts Aeronautics Commission (MAC) join the National Guard Bureau as cooperating agencies. The proposal consists of an aircraft conversion from 15 A-10 primary assigned aircraft (PAA) and 2 backup aircraft inventory (BAI) to 18 F-15 PAA and 2 BAI aircraft. This conversion is a result of the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) Commission Final and Approved Recommendations. In association with the aircraft conversion, the current close air support mission associated with the A-10 aircraft would change to an air superiority/air sovereignty alert mission associated with the F-15 aircraft. As part of the aircraft conversion and mission change, the 104th Fighter Wing (104 FW) would have an increase of 139 full-time and 111 part-time authorized personnel; and the Army National Guard would have in increase of 25 full-time and 274 part-time. To accommodate these changes, the Massachusetts National Guard proposes to implement several construction projects at their installation at Westfield-Barnes Airport, as well as to correct several existing facility deficiencies through modifications to existing facilities and construction of several new facilities. In addition to the proposed action, the no- action alternative will be analyzed in the EIS. The National Guard Bureau will conduct a scoping meeting to solicit public input concerning the proposal. The scoping process will help identify issues to be addressed in the environmental analysis. In addition to the comments received at the scoping meetings, written comments on the scope of the EIS will be accepted by the National Guard Bureau at the address below through September 1, 2006. The National Guard Bureau will accept relevant comments at any time during the environmental analysis process.

Notice of Intent To Perform an Environmental Assessment for the Retirement of the F-117A and T-38A Aircraft and Beddown of the F-22A at Holloman Air Force Base, NM
Document Number: E6-5169
Type: Notice
Date: 2006-04-10
Agency: Department of Defense, Department of the Air Force, Air Force Department
The United States Air Force is issuing this Notice of Intent (NOI) to announce that it is conducting an Environmental Assessment (EA) to determine the potential environmental consequences of a proposal to transform the combat capability of the 49th Fighter Wing and maximize the use of available infrastructure at Holloman AFB by replacing the retiring F-117A aircraft and T-38A aircraft supporting the F-117A mission with two F-22A squadrons. The Air Force has identified Holloman AFB as the preferred location for the third operational wing of the Air Force's F-22A Raptor, which would enhance the low observable, precision weapons system capability of the 49th Fighter Wing. The EA for the proposed action will be prepared in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321- 4347), the Council on Environmental Quality NEPA Regulations (40 CFR 1500-1508); and the Air Force's Environmental Impact Analysis Process (EIAP) (Air Force Instruction 32-7061 as promulgated at 32 CFR 989). As part of the proposal, the Air Force will analyze the following actions at Holloman AFB: Retire F-117A and T-38A aircraft currently based at Holloman AFB. Beddown and operate two F-22A aircraft squadrons. Renovate existing facilities and construct new facilities to support the F-22A squadrons. Adjust base manning to reflect F-22A beddown requirements Conduct F-22A training routinely in airspace within 100 miles of Holloman AFB, to include supersonic operations. Expand chaff and flare use in military airspace. Alternatives meeting the underlying purpose and need of the proposed action, if any, will be developed during the EIAP process. This process includes gathering information from the scoping meetings.

Notice of Intent To Perform an Environmental Assessment for Increased Depleted Uranium Use at Nevada Test and Training Range, Nevada
Document Number: E6-794
Type: Notice
Date: 2006-01-24
Agency: Department of Defense, Department of the Air Force, Air Force Department
The United States Air Force is issuing this Notice of Intent (NOI) to announce that it is conducting an environmental assessment for the proposed action for increasing the annual number of depleted uranium (DU) rounds fired by A-10 aircraft using the 30-millimeter GAU- 8 Gatling gun at the Nevada Test and Training Range (NTTR), Range 63, Target 63-10. This NOI describes the Air Force's proposed scoping process and identifies the Air Force's point of contact. Target 63-10 is the Air Force's only air-to-ground target for testing and training with DU rounds. The proposed assessment will be prepared in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321-4347), the Council on Environmental Quality NEPA regulations (40 CFR parts 1500-1508), and Air Force's Environmental Impact Analysis Process (EIAP) (Air Force Instruction 32-7061 as promulgated at 32 CFR part 989) to determine the potential environmental effects of increasing DU rounds at the NTTR. As part of the proposal, the Air Force will analyze three alternatives: A, B, and C. Alternative A (proposed action) would increase the annual use of 30-mm DU rounds in a combat mix (CM) from an existing 9,500 to 22,800 annually. CM contains armor-piercing incendiary (API) DU rounds mixed with high explosive incendiary (HEI) rounds in a 5 to 1 ratio. Alternative A would increase the annual use of DU rounds from 7,900 to 19,000 (and HEI rounds from 1,600 to 3,800) to provide the 422 Test and Evaluation Squadron (TES) and the 66 Weapons Squadron (WPS) graduates with sufficient DU rounds to accomplish essential testing and training requirements. Alternative B would enhance testing by increasing the use of CM to a total of 31,680 rounds (26,400 DU and 5,280 HEI) at Target 63-10. This alternative would meet test and training requirements and also allow additional testing by Tactics Development & Evaluation (TD&E) and Tactics Improvement Proposals (TIP). Alternative C (no-action) would reflect no change in current operations associated with Target 63-10 whereby 9,500 CM rounds (7,900 DU and 1,600 HEI) are deployed for test and training. This number (9,500) does not provide enough rounds for effective TES testing and WPS training.
