Transition to end users of the research and demonstrations funded under SERDP and ESTCP is of primary importance to the Programs. To further technology transition efforts, ESTCP released a solicitation in April 2015 to seek innovative technology transfer approaches. A total of 14 projects were selected for funding, eight of which address issues associated with the Environmental Restoration Program Area. More

In 2007, SERDP and the DoD Legacy Resource Management Program sponsored a Workshop on Southeast Region Threatened, Endangered, and At-Risk Species. As a result, SERDP funded three research projects in 2009 to develop ecological reference models and assessment frameworks for ecological recovery in the southeastern United States. More

Magnetometry and electromagnetic induction technologies have long been used to survey former military sites for buried munitions as part of evaluation and cleanup efforts. In 2009, ESTCP, with input from representatives of the services, state and federal regulators, and the National Association of Ordnance Contractors (NAOC), formalized a Geophysical System Verification process by which these geophysical technologies are rigorously evaluated for performance.

Polyimide Resin-15 (PMR-15) is classified as a polymerized monomeric reactant and is used in the preparation of carbon fiber reinforced composites. Methylene dianiline (MDA) is a component of PMR-15 that is a known carcinogen and liver toxin. SERDP has funded several research and development efforts on the topic of MDA alternatives as well as efforts aimed at sustainable PMR-15 alternatives. More

The DoD has funded numerous pilot- and field-scale demonstrations of in situ remediation technologies over the past 20 years. In May 2015, proposals were requested to conduct follow-up assessments at pilot- or full-scale restoration sites that had completed restoration activities three or more years ago. Eleven projects were selected for funding. More
