Nye County to see more scientific development by Andy Holtmann Nye County will be seeing more science and technol- ogy come its way thanks to a new joint venture with the Nevada Test Site. In its annual meeting on July 22, the Nevada Test Site Development Corporation voted to appropriate $198,400 in seed money to be used for a joint project between the county and the test site called the Nevada Science and Technology Corridor. According to NTS Development Chairman John O'Reilley, the public-private partnership is in it s initial stages. The goal, he said, was to bring economic devel- opment to the U.S. Highway 95 corridor from Pahrump and Indian Springs in the south to Tonopah in the north. A telecommunications infrastructure that would ser- vice all of Nye County is planned along the corridor. The infrastructure would provide better satellite, phone, radio, and television coverage to the area. NTS spokes- woman Susan Haase said that the infrastructure would most likely be just off of U.S. Highway 95, north of the Highway 160 interchange. Another project that this partnership will provide aid for is the completion ofa Tonopah Airport master plan. The airport, which will be expanding, will seek finan- cial aid that will help to finish renovations and expan- sion. An aeronautic and technology park will be con- structed in Tonopah with a smaller, branch version being built in Lathrop Wells. The park will serve as development and testing centers for aerospace pro- grams. $57,500 of the nearly $200,000 appropriated will go toward this corridor development. The rest of the money wilt be given to Kistler Aerospace. The Seattle based aerospace firm has developed what they say is a reusable satellite launch pad. Launch pads that are currently used are "disposable," burning and self destructing after their satellite packages are deliv- ered. Kistler's pad would be built out of high grade mate- rials that would not suffer from the rocket fuel used to propel the satellites on into orbit. This new pad would also be mobile, allowing for easy transportation. "The pad stays on the test site grounds where we launch most of the satellites," Haase said. "When we're not using it, it would be moved out of the area. The best thing about it though is that we can use it more than once." Haase said a project of this sort has never been attempted before. If Kister's launch pad works, it is estimated to save hundreds of thousands of dollars in the long run. Nye County's benefits lie in the way of employment. Once all of the projects along the science and technol- ogy corridor are in place, nearly.2,000 jobs are expected to be created. There was no word as to when any of these projects will begin.
