For 25 years ICF has supported the environmental program for the Federal Aviation Administration Commercial Space Transportation (FAA/AST). ICF has an unparalleled understanding of FAA/AST’s processes and procedures related to commercial space permit and license applications. We have developed and can implement streamlining strategies to effectively navigate the environmental review portion of the licensing and permitting processes.
Through experience gained from working with FAA/AST and the Missile Defense Agency, ICF is well-versed in developing and supporting U.S. federal environmental programs for space launch activity. ICF can help you get through the environmental review process efficiently and effectively from start to finish by:
- Developing Environmental Assessments (EAs) and other required documentation, including the technical analysis of potential impacts of your project, such as noise and air
- Coordinating with federal agencies such as U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service about environmental requirements
- Providing input on environmental issues that may affect your project specifications
- Helping you comply with all the necessary environmental requirements, such as the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), FAA Order 1050.1E, and related requirements such as Section 404 of the Clean Water Act, which might require a permit
ICF has the experience necessary to take existing technical data and develop the analyses required by FAA/AST to support the regulatory requirements related to the licensing and permitting processes. By relying on our years of experience in the field, we can efficiently and cost-effectively support the needs of license and permit applicants.
