Abstract:

In response to a recent Defense Science Board Task Force report and Congressional interest, the Environmental Security Technology Certification Program designed a Wide Area Assessment Pilot Program that consisted of demonstrations at three sites to validate the application of a number of recently developed and validated technologies as a comprehensive approach to Wide Area Assessment of sites potentially contaminated with unexploded munitions. One of these sites was the former Pueblo Precision Bombing Range 2 in Otero County, CO. Geophysical data from airborne sensors, helicopter magnetometer arrays, and ground arrays were collected in the Fall of 2005. The final phase of the demonstration is a field validation of the results obtained from the geophysical surveys. This phase will consist of ground reconnaissance on selected areas and features of the demonstration site, additional ground-based geophysical measurements if required, and intrusive investigation of a number of the anomalies identified by the geophysical surveys. This report details the plan for the validation efforts.
