The U.S. Missile Defense Agency will host a public meeting Wednesday to talk about a new radar facility the agency is building at Clear Air Force Station.

The meeting will be held online and by telephone only, to prevent the risk of exposing members of the public to the coronavirus.

During the meeting, missile-defense officials will discuss a Draft Environmental Impact Statement the agency has compiled on the operations of the facility, known as the Long Range Discrimination Radar, or LRDR. The officials also will respond to questions from the public.

The LRDR is being built to provide much greater range and acuity for detecting and tracking incoming enemy missiles.
The online and telephonic meeting is part of the public comment process on the radar’s Draft EIS. The deadline to submit comments on the document is Dec. 21.
The meeting will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. Members of the public may participate by calling toll-free to (855) 756-7520, and then entering a five-digit access code: 65743, or by going online to www.cleareis.com. Comments may be submitted online through the Dec. 21 deadline.

Comments may also be submitted by email, addressed to lrdr.info@mda.mil; by fax, sent to (907) 644-2022; by voicemail, called-in to (256) 450-1599; or U.S. Post Service mail, addressed to:
