Over the last ten years Quent has either directed, advised, acted as the principal investigator, or served as a consultant for airspace use analysis on the programs identified below.  The airspace use analysis involved the examination of each program’s potential impact on controlled and uncontrolled airspace, special use airspace, military training routes, en route airways and jet routes, airports and airfields, and air traffic control.  In addition to conducting the airspace use analysis, he was responsible for liaison with airspace managers at the affected installation(s), airports/airfields, FAA Air Route Traffic Control Center personnel, and FAA Headquarters personnel in terms of collecting information, identifying airspace use issues and concerns, and responding to program questions and document review comments.

Airspace Use Consultant. Resumption of Military Training Activities at Makua Military Reservation EIS. Responsible for assessing the airspace use impacts of increased helicopter flights, use of unmanned aerial vehicles, and forward area refueling and rearming points associated with the resumption of live-fire military training activities over Makua Military Reservation on Oahu.  To Tetra Tech, Inc., Honolulu, HI, for U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Honolulu, HI – 2003-04.

Airspace Use Consultant: Army Transformation Stryker Brigade Combat Team EIS. Responsible for assessing the airspace use impacts of increased fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft flights over Schofield Barracks Military Reservation and Wheeler Army Airfield, Dillingham Military Reservation, Kahuka Training Area and Kawailoa Military Reservation on Oahu, and Pohakoloa Training Area on the island of Hawaii. Program also involved the proposed use of unmanned aerial vehicles, and a proposed new reoriented runway at Bradshaw Army Airfield to accommodate an increase in the number of C-17 and C-130 aircraft operations.  To Tetra Tech, Inc., Honolulu, HI, for U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Honolulu, HI – 2002-04.

Airspace Use Consultant, Ehime Maru EA. Responsible for assessing the airspace use impacts of establishing temporary flight restriction (TFR) areas over various alternative sites and transit corridors involved in the raising, shallow-water recovery of crewmembers and their effects and removal of fuel oils and other contaminants from the Ehime Maru training vessel, and its relocation to a deep water site.  TFRs were sought to control overflights of helicopters and other sightseeing aircraft over the recovery efforts to ensure diver safety and communication between divers and personnel aboard the recovery vessels.  To Teledyne Solutions, Inc., Huntsville, AL for U.S. Navy CINCPACFLT, Pearl Harbor, HI – 2001.

Airspace Use Consultant, PAVE PAWS Service Life Extension Program EIS.

Airspace Use Consultant, National Missile Defense Deployment EIS. Responsible for assessing the airspace use impacts, including air navigation and communications facilities, of deploying an XBR Radar in the Aleutian Islands, Alaska and at the Stanley R. Mickelsen Safeguard Complex, North Dakota. Two options were analyzed: (1) creation of a new Special Use Airspace around both sites; (2) reliance on an aeronautical chart notice and the implementation of various mitigation measures, including an FAA airport surveillance radar or an embedded tracker in the XBR radar to detect and track aircraft approaching the EMR hazard zone. For EDAW, Inc., for the USASMDC, Huntsville, AL – 1998-99.

Airspace Use Consultant, Eglin Gulf Test Range Supplemental EIS.  Responsible for assessing the airspace use impacts of conducting Theater Missile Defense (TMD) flight tests of defensive missiles against target missiles over the Gulf of Mexico using both existing special use airspace, and proposed new controlled firing areas in the Florida Keys and off Cape San Blas, FL.  To EDAW, Inc. for USASSDC, Huntsville AL – 1997-98

Airspace Use Consultant, Pacific Missile Range Facility Enhanced Capability EIS.  Responsible for assessing the airspace use impacts of both current, on-going activities and proposed flight tests of both land-launched and ship-launched defensive missiles against land-launched, sea-launched and air-dropped target missiles over the open Pacific Ocean using both existing special use airspace, and proposed new ALTRV procedures off the Hawaiian islands.  To EDAW, Inc. for USASSDC, Huntsville, AL – 1996-98.
