Abstract:

Managing land and water resources has become an increasingly difficult and challenging task for the Department of Defense DoD. Although current and emerging technologies can help managers address the demands of environmental management, these technologies have limited linkage with modeling and decision support tools and they lack the full interoperability needed to support DoD land management decisionmakers. This report describes a system that will provide a framework to bring together relevant science and technology, maximize synergism between technology initiatives, and improve the timeliness and effectiveness of technology delivery to managers. The system is the Land Management System LMS. LMS is an initiative of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Engineer Research and Development Center to design, develop, support, and apply an integrated capability for modeling and decision support technologies relevant to the management of DoD lands, seas, and airspace.
