Abstract : During the period October 2016-June 2017, the U.S. Army Natick Soldier Research Development and Engineering Center (NSRDEC) collected and assessed information on system attributes of selected technologies related to the objectives of Sustainability Logistics Basing Science and Technology Objective Demonstration (SLB-STO-D). The goal of the SLB-STO-D is to demonstrate emerging materiel solution technologies and associated non-materiel solutions that can reduce the need for fuel resupply by 25 percent, for water resupply by 75 percent, and for waste removal by 50 percent, while maintaining or improving the quality of life at expeditionary base camps. The technologies that are the subject of this report were down-selected for inclusion in the SLB-STO-D portfolio and are included in the Integrated Solution Sets that satisfy the STO-D challenge. Most of these technologies participated in previous field data collection events at operational base camp venues. These selected technologies are in various stages of maturity along their individual acquisition life cycles. This assessment, called the Selected Technology Assessment, highlights the system-level attributes of these technologies and identifies areas of promise and areas for improvement. This Technical Report documents the objectives, technologies, methods, and results of the SLB-STO-D Selected Technology Assessment.
