[ARCHIVED] Camden County and FAA Agree to Toll Licensing Decision Clock as Application Progresses

While the public safety review performed to date has demonstrated that a medium-large launch vehicle with a first-stage return would meet all applicable public safety requirements, even when conservative assumptions are used, the County believes that narrowing the application to include operation of only small launch vehicles with no first-stage returns is more consistent with the types of operations that will be conducted at Spaceport Camden and will streamline the review process at the FAA. 

This temporary pause in the statutory 180-day clock will allow the FAA to conduct additional analysis on the launch of small launch vehicles at Spaceport Camden and will further address any safety concerns expressed in public comments.  

Camden County intends to continue to work closely with the FAA to develop a new timeline for the completion of its LSOL application and associated environmental reviews.
