Section 3. Military NAVAIDs
Military NAVAID proposals
may affect airspace or airport utilization and the availability of interference
protected frequencies. Consequently, military proposals involving the
establishment or relocation of military NAVAIDs are forwarded to the service
area office for nonrulemaking studies. Such proposals should contain the
a. Site of the
NAVAIDs using geographical coordinates to the nearest hundredth of a second.
b. Equipment type.
c. Power output.
e. Any other
4-3-2. COORDINATION WITH
The service area office
is authorized to coordinate with the originating military organization to obtain
any additional information needed for the nonrulemaking study.
4-3-3. EVALUATION BY
TECHNICAL OPERATIONS SERVICES OFFICE
The regional Frequency
Management Office must evaluate the military proposal to determine frequency
availability and frequency protection. This evaluation must be provided to the
responsible service area office.
If the frequency
evaluation report is favorable, the service area office must complete
coordination with the appropriate Airports, Flight Standards, and other
Technical Operations service area offices, and the FPT. If appropriate,
circularize the proposal to user groups and other interested persons for
comment. If the public comments indicate further discussion is warranted, then
consideration should be given to holding an informal airspace meeting to discuss
The responsibility to
determine the acceptability of the military proposal is delegated to the service
area office after coordination with the FPT, Technical Operations service area
office, Flight Standards, and Airports Divisions. Any problems with, or
objections to, the proposal must be resolved at the regional/service area office
level prior to issuance of the decision. The determination must be issued in
memorandum form stating that the FAA has “no objections" or “objects" to the
installation of the NAVAID. Airports Divisions are cautioned to ensure that site
locations for the establishment or relocation of NAVAIDs on obligated airports
are in accordance with FAA approved Airport Layout Plans. Any restrictions or
reasons why the proposal is objectionable must be clearly set forth in the
4-3-6. NOTIFICATION AND
The appropriate service
area office must normally address the determination to the military organization
that originated the proposal. When the request for the study originated from FAA
headquarters, then the determination should be directed to the office requesting
the study or relayed to the Military Command through FAA/Department of Defense
(DOD) coordination procedures. Forward copies of the memorandum to ARN-1, the
Technical Operations ATC Spectrum Engineering Services, Spectrum Assignment and
Engineering Services, and those regional/service area offices that participated
in the study.
