  • Munitions Response

  • Classification in Munitions Response Training

    Classification in Munitions Response Training

    Classification is used to differentiate between hazardous munitions and other nonhazardous geology and debris that are detected by sensors used in munitions response. Since digging up harmless items dominates the cost of most MR projects, classification has the potential to support more cost effective use of available resources. SERDP and ESTCP have invested in developing sensors and methods for classification for a decade and recent demonstrations on...

  • Geophysical System Verification Training

    Geophysical System Verification Training

    As digital geophysical sensors were introduced in munitions response projects, the geophysical prove-out (GPO) was developed to determine whether the geophysical data collected would meet project objectives. Over the last 15 years, numerous GPOs have been performed on a variety of site conditions, and a significant body of knowledge has accumulated documenting the performance of these technologies. This accumulated understanding, along with the...

  • Visual Sample Plan Training

    Visual Sample Plan Training

    Visual Sample Plan (VSP) is a software tool that supports the development of statistically-defensible sampling and data analysis plans used for site characterization. SERDP and ESTCP have supported the development of the UXO module within VSP ( MR-200325 & 

  • Resource Conservation and Resiliency

  • Ecosystem-Based Management Training

    Ecosystem-Based Management Training

    SERDP and ESTCP efforts are developing and demonstrating the science, models, tools, and methods needed to implement the concept of ecosystem-based management, in a manner that sustains ecological systems and the military mission, through the use of scientifically robust performance metrics.

  • Watershed Management Training

    Watershed Management Training

    SERDP and ESTCP efforts are developing and demonstrating the science, models, tools, and methods needed to understand and manage DoD’s land and water resources and sustain their use for military training and testing lands while meeting stewardship requirements.

  • Species Management Training

    Species Management Training

    SERDP and ESTCP efforts are developing and demonstrating the science, models, methods, and technologies associated with species management. The focus of these efforts is on minimizing impacts and reducing conflicts between threatened, endangered, and at-risk species management and...

  • Weapons Systems and Platforms Training

    Weapons Systems and Platforms Training

    Advanced Surface Engineering Technologies for a Sustainable Defense – ASETSDefense – is an initiative sponsored by SERDP and ESTCP with the objective of facilitating the implementation of new, environmentally friendly technologies for surface engineering (coatings and surface treatments). These alternative surface engineering technologies protect weapons systems from environmental degradation, maintaining military readiness and reducing...

  • Environmental Restoration

  • Range Contaminants Training

    Range Contaminants Training

    Concern over the release of munitions constituents (MC) on ranges and the potential for off-site migration endangers the long-term sustainability of ranges. To ensure the long-term viability of operational ranges while protecting human health and the environment, SERDP and ESTCP have funded a significant body of basic and applied research to improve understanding of the MCs resulting from military training activities on ranges and to develop...

  • Risk Assessment Training

    Risk Assessment Training

    Testing and training require the firing of live ammunition, which can result in contamination of ranges by toxic metals and munitions constituents. SERDP and ESTCP efforts are focused on improving the military’s ability to assess and predict human and ecological risk from these contaminants and on providing effective tools and science that enable DoD to manage contaminated sites using a risk-based approach.

  • Vapor Intrusion Training

    Vapor Intrusion Training

    The risk pathway in the migration of vapors from contaminated groundwater plumes into surface and sub-surface structures is the driver for many corrective action plans and site cleanups. SERDP and ESTCP efforts have focused on developing a more robust understanding of vapor intrusion and its significance, as well as improving the current sampling methodology and risk assessment approach for vapor intrusion assessments.

  • Contaminated Sediments Training

    Contaminated Sediments Training

    Sediments contaminated with toxic chemicals such as polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), metals, and metalloids can be found in marine and estuarine bays, harbors, lakes, wetlands, and rivers. SERDP and ESTCP are addressing a wide variety of issues relevant to managing contaminated sediments in place and assessing the processes that govern ecological and human health risks.
