Kauai Test Facility
Kauai Test Facility is a DOE facility for 1962 to the present so workers are eligible to file for Part B and Part E claims.
Kauai Test Facility is situated on the north end of the U.S. Navy Pacific Missile Range Facility on the west side of the island of Kauai, Hawaii. The Kauai Test Facility has 25 major buildings. Kauai Test Facility is equipped with resources for assembling, testing, launching, tracking, and recovering instrumented rockets, rocket payloads, and aircraft payloads. The Facility also provides high-quality capabilities for receiving, recording, and "quicklook playback" of radio telemetered test data. Additionally, resources are available for optical tracking and photometric coverage of test objects and experiments.
The Kauai Test Facility has been in operation since the mid-1970s, conducting an average of three to four weapon system delivery tests per year. The Department of Energy (DOE) suspected that these tests resulted in contamination of three release sites including the rocket launch pads, a drum storage area, and a photography laboratory.
DOE lists Kauai Test Facility as a covered EEOICPA facility.
