Finishing systems for military vehicles require pretreatments that enhance adhesion and provide resistance to corrosion. These treatments either directly contain toxic metals, or require a sealer or other rinse products that do.

ESTCP 2017 Project-of-the-Year Award for Energy and Water

Conventional Geothermal Heat Pumps (GHP) Heating, Ventilating and Air-Conditioning (HVAC) systems are considered one of the most efficient active HVAC systems. According to the Whole Building Design Guide and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), GHPs use 25% to 50% less electricity and offer energy savings of up to 40% compared to the conventional heating or cooling systems. They are relatively quieter, last longer, need little maintenance, and do not depend on the temperature of the outside air.

SERDP 2017 Project-of-the-year Award for Environmental Restoration

Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) are common contaminants at sites where aqueous film-forming foam (AFFF) was used. Currently, the understanding of the composition of individual PFASs and their precursors in AFFF formulations and their impact on priority pollutant biotransformation is limited.

SERDP 2017 Project-of-the-Year Award for Resource Conservation and Resiliency

Over the past sixty years there have been important long-term changes in the atmospheric conditions during the period of the annual monsoon in Southwestern United States. Given the potential impact of these changes and the risk they pose to infrastructural limits and operational capabilities of the many Department of Defense (DoD) facilities in the region, the DoD requested an evaluation of the changes in extreme weather during the late summer.

SERDP 2017 Project of the Year Award for Munitions Response

SERDP has been sponsoring development of a simple, engineering model of mobility, burial and re-exposure of unexploded ordnance (UXO) and UXO-like objects for a number of years.  Several SERDP-funded investigators are contributing to this development through in-situ and laboratory measurements of the important processes involved and development of environmental predictions.

SERDP 2017 Project of the Year Weapons Systems & Platforms

Contamination of military ranges from low order detonation and unexploded submunitions is a significant environmental and personnel safety concern for the Department of Defense (DoD). Even the acceptable failure rate of submunitions results in a significant number of items that must be removed from DoD training ranges.

Have you ever tried connecting some innovative technology to a military network only to be overwhelmed by the complex and protracted authorization process?  

That process is called the Risk Management Framework or RMF.  The concept originated in the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) in 2014 as a concept for use by all Federal agencies to protect their computer networks from cyber exploitation.

The Department of Defense (DoD) produces more classified documents than any other organization in the United States. These documents ultimately windup being destroyed, often by pulverization. As a result, a sizable waste stream is created.

We have just completed the fall meetings of the  SERDP Scientific Advisory Board (SAB).  I don’t know if it is generally recognized how valuable the SAB is to SERDP so I want to spend a little time this week expanding on that premise.
