Parker, L. C. (n.d.). Nasa Goddard Space Flight Center Wallops Flight Facility September 1989. Retrieved from

Excerpt: At the direction of the Office of Commercial Space Transportation (OCST), Research Triangle Institute (RTI) conducted a study of the Goddard Space Flight Center/Wallops Flight Facility (GSFC/WFF) at Wallops Island, Virginia. The purpose of the study was to establish a baseline upon which OCST could assess whether or not a commercial launch proposal is safe. Since the emphasis of the study is upon launch vehicles, particularly orbital launch vehicles, many activities at the WFF have not been treated with the same degree of attention. These range from a research airport with aeronautical research and airborne geoscience/applications programs to extensive activities associated with targets, drones and balloons, many of which are performed off range.
