DoD Preliminary Screening Tool

faa.gov Tools: Printer graphicPrint this page

Disclaimer:
  • The DoD Preliminary Screening Tool enables developers to obtain a preliminary review of potential impacts to Long-Range and Weather Radar(s), Military Training Route(s) and Special Airspace(s) prior to official OE/AAA filing. This tool will produce a map relating the structure to any of the DoD/DHS and NOAA resources listed above. The use of this tool is 100 % optional and will provide a first level of feedback and single points of contact within the DoD/DHS and NOAA to discuss impacts/mitigation efforts on the military training mission and NEXRAD Weather Radars. The use of this tool does not in any way replace the official FAA processes/procedures.

Instructions:
  • Select a screening type for your initial evaluation. Currently the system supports pre-screening on:
    -Air Defense and Homeland Security radars(Long Range Radar)
    -Weather Surveillance Radar-1988 Doppler radars(NEXRAD)
    -Military Operations
  • Enter either a single point or a polygon and click submit to generate a long range radar analysis map.
  • Military Operations is only available for a single point.
  • At least three points are required for a polygon, with an optional fourth point.
  • The largest polygon allowed has a maximum perimeter of 100 miles.

Map Legend:
  • Green: No anticipated impact to Air Defense and Homeland Security radars. Aeronautical study required.

  • Green: No Impact Zone. Impacts not likely. NOAA will not perform a detailed analysis, but would still like to know about the project.


  • Dk Green: Notification Zone. Some impacts possible. Consultation with NOAA is optional, but NOAA would still like to know about the project.


  • Yellow: Impact likely to Air Defense and Homeland Security radars. Aeronautical study required.

  • Orange: Mitigation Zone. Significant impacts likely. NOAA will likely request mitigation if a detailed analysis indicates that the project will cause significant impacts.


  • Red: Impact highly likely to Air Defense and Homeland Security radars. Aeronautical study required.
