First, about access:  ACS has full access, round the clcck to Beacon and
Capitol Park limited only by our COMT's (Mark, Carl, Doug, Randy, Casey)
availability.  Bringing third parties requires about a week to establish a
training mission number.  If we can do the work ourselves, then only our
schedules are factors.

Thank you Nigel for your detailed response on the reuse point.  I am
guessing from this that there is no objection in principle to trying to put
this link in place.  We just need to fine the most compatible and
affordable solution.  Randy has started researching this but we should
double down on this.
