Title: ●Expanding Options for Ship Protection During Launch and Reentry 

This action would align the FAA Commercial Space requirements in parts 417, 431, and 435, for protecting ships during launch or reentry missions with the new practice at USAF ranges, and offer launch and reentry operators an often preferable option for compliance with the current regulations. This action would allow the launch or reentry operator to proceed if a near real-time assessment demonstrates that the total mission risk are satisfied given the best available data on the conditions during flight.
