Finally, public sentiment and acceptance will be a significant factor in the ability to implement any technology to dispose of the separated rocket motors, as well in the decision whether to dispose of the separated rocket motors on-site or off-site. There is a long-standing, interested, and very knowledgeable community living and working around BGAD. This community has successfully influenced program choices regarding BGCAPP in the past and can be expected to continue to do so. Thus, while not explicit in the committee’s statement of task, issues of public sentiment warrant some mention in the report.
