Abstract:

This effort documents a comprehensive DoD strategy for environmental RDTE investments. It is difficult to assess the future success of current investments in relation to current and projected Navy problems. It was concluded, however, that investments that assist in transition of those technologies in the early stage of development to individual sites will increase the likelihood of success. Improved capabilities are needed in the areas of perchlorate, munition constituents toxicity data for risk assessment, coral reef assessments, training impact quantification, munition constituents field detection, and monitoring and mitigating releases from ranges. Advancing technologies in these areas will support the readiness of the warfighter and Navy Ranges by reducing compliance burdens, costs to programs, future regulatory constraints, and improved methods for impact avoidance and range management.
