Abstract:

The Standardized UXO Technology Demonstration Site Program is a multi-agency undertaking coordinated by the U.S. Army Environmental Center AEC. The U.S. Army Aberdeen Test Center ATC and the Engineer Research and Development Center ERDC provide programmatic support. The program is being funded and supported by the Environmental Security Technology Certification Program ESTCP and Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program SERDP. The objective of the Standardized Unexploded Ordnance UXO Technology Demonstration Site Program is to provide the procedures, materials and technical assistance required to establish standardized sites in geographical areas that have unique features that may interfere with the ability of a given technology to detect and discriminate buried ordnance. This objective has two applications. First, it provides the UXO technology developers with standardized research and development sites for sensorsystem technology research, testing and demonstration in a variety of geographical locations. It also provides guidance on establishing a quality-control site to check on a technologys ability to operate effectively in a specific area prior to restoration efforts. The objective of this document is to establish the protocols need to construct, operate, and maintain a Standardized UXO Technology Demonstration Site.
