Abstract : The Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP) is the Department of Defense's environmental science and technology program. To fulfill its mission to address environmental problems through innovative research and share that information across federal and private organizations, SERDP executes the program in partnership with the Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency. Further, SERDP fully leverages complementary programs within the Department of Defense and solicits participation from other public and private research organizations. This report provides a summary of SERDP's activities and its most significant accomplishments for FY 2007, its plans for FY 2008, and new research activities to be addressed in FY 2009. It responds directly to the requirements as stated in Title 10, U.S.C. section 2902, as modified. The organization and management of SERDP is described in Section I--SERDP Structure. As directed by the SERDP Council, the Executive Director and Program Office Staff implement the Program with the recommendations from the SERDP Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) and the support of SERDP technical committees (STCs) to meet high priority, DoD mission-related environmental needs. SERDP conducts and manages basic research through advanced technology development in four technology Focus Areas: Environmental Restoration, Munitions Management, Sustainable Installations, and Weapons Systems and Platforms. SERDP establishes clear technical goals and employs key metrics to assess and ensure the quality and success of the Program. Section II--Investment Strategy and Performance describes Program accomplishments during FY 2007 within the two broad investment strategy areas: Sustainable Training and Testing Ranges and Reducing Current and Future Liabilities.
