The 2017 National Defense Authorization Act requires the MDA to develop a plan to procure and field a ballistic missile defense radar for the defense of Hawaii. MDA is required to evaluate possible site locations best suited for future deployment of a radar capable of protecting the homeland against threats from nations, such as North Korea and Iran. The Ballistic Missile Defense System provides protection of the U.S. from existing missile threats. The proposed radar will provide added defense capability against evolving threats to enhance the defense of Hawaii.

The potential site locations for the radar, which will be evaluated in the EIS, are at Kuaokala Ridge on State land adjacent to the U.S. Air Force’s Kaena Point Satellite Tracking Station and at the U.S. Army’s Kahuku Training Area.

These locations are on the island of Oahu. Your input is important to ensure significant environmental issues, other areas of concern, and alternatives are considered in the EIS process.

The public scoping meetings will be conducted in an open house format and will provide attendees with the opportunity to talk with and ask questions of representatives from the MDA and other cooperating agencies. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to provide verbal and written official comments on the proposed project. Verbal comments will be provided one-on-one to a court reporter. The MDA will use your input to help identify environmental and other issues to be considered in completing this environmental study.

In addition to attending the meeting, the public may submit written comments until July 23, 2018.

Fax: 256-713-1617
303 Williams Ave., Suite 116 Huntsville, AL 35801

Anyone having further questions or media wishing to attend the meeting should contact MDA Public Affairs at 256-450-1599, or via email at
