Abstract : The purpose of this report is to formally issue the Department of Defense (DoD) environmental technology requirements. This report provides the baseline of environmental technology requirements held across DoD, and the information is intended to assist DoD Environment, Safety, and Occupational Health (ESOH) executives in implementing broad environmental technology policy objectives. In addition, this report demonstrates continuity among the Military Departments (MILDEPs) environmental technology programs and helps validate DoD resource requirements for research and development (R&D) program plans. The primary objectives of the DoD Requirements Review Initiative were to compile, consolidate, and review the MILDEPs environmental technology requirements; identify requirements common across DoD or unique to a MILDEP; develop and demonstrate a common framework with concurrence across the MILDEPs; and disseminate the results in a DoD report. The MILDEPs submitted two hundred twenty-nine Requirements Statements: 127 from the Air Force, 46 from the Army, and 56 from the Navy. The 229 Requirements Statements expressed 376 individual R&D needs that are grouped into 62 R&D Need Areas, as developed by the ESOH Technology Requirements Steering Group. In short, this report: Presents all DoD's Requirements Statements (Appendices B, C, and D); Provides a numerical summary of requirements in each of the R&D Need Areas by MILDEP (Table 2.1) Presents a compilation and analysis of similar requirements for each R&D Need Area (Appendix A); and Identifies those unique requirements within each R&D Need Area (Appendix A).
