Monday, April 14, 2014 (All day)

The U.S. Army has scheduled a flight test of hypersonic technology from the Kodiak Launch Complex, Alaska to the Reagan Test Site, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll. The Advanced Hypersonic Weapon Flight Test- 2 Hypersonic Technology Test is scheduled in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2014. Support areas associated with this test include Sand Point, Alaska.

Test objectives are to collect a wide variety of data on hypersonic boost-glide technologies and to demonstrate the boost and atmospheric flight of the AHW HTT concept. Focus during the test will be on boost and atmospheric flight performance of aerodynamics; navigation, guidance and control; and thermal protection system technologies.

An environmental assessment has been conducted in support of this activity, and is available to the public for review and comment at local libraries and also available at www.ahw-ft2-httea.info/documents/HTT_FT02_PublicDraftEA.pdf .
