Letter Report to Review the International Epidemiology Public Health Institute's
Evaluation of Radiofrequency Energy from the PAVE PAWS Radar

This final letter report is from a committee that determined in a 2005 report that a radar installation at a U.S. Air Force base on Cape Cod did not present a health risk to nearby residents. The letter comments on the relevance of a new epidemiology study to the committee's earlier findings.

This briefing was for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on March 9, 2006 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
