The Air Force issues this notice to advise the public of its intent to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Beddown and Flight Operations of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) at Grand Forks Air Force Base, North Dakota. The EIS will assess the potential environmental impacts associated with the proposed beddown and flight operations of unmanned aerial systems (UASs) at Grand Forks Air Force Base (GFAFB). The proposal responds to the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) decision to beddown the emerging UAS mission at GFAFB and entails restructuring airspace in the vicinity of GFAFB to allow for the safe training and operations of UASs. Additional information is available at the project Web site listed below.
