The Navy Environmental Sustainability Development to Integration NESDI program provides critical Research, Development, Testing and Evaluation RDTE with a focus on demonstration and validation and technology integration support to the environmental shore community. The mission of the NESDI program is to provide solutions by demonstrating, validating and integrating innovative technologies, processes, materials, and filling knowledge gaps to minimize operational environmental risks, constraints and costs while ensuring Fleet readiness. The program seeks to accomplish this mission through the evaluation of cost-effective technologies, processes, materials and knowledge that enhance environmental readiness of naval shore activities and ensure they can be integrated into weapons system acquisition programs. The NESDI program had an operating budget of 5.718 M for FY10 with 40 active projects. Over 30 percent of the programs budget falls under the Regulatory and Base Operations Investment Area which reflects the ongoing need to maintain compliance and avoid Notices of Violation, enhance the Navys ability to effectively negotiate permits, and provide solutions for new requirements. Approximately 25 percent of the program s budget is dedicated to the Weapon Systems Sustainment and Ship-to-Shore Interface and Air and Port Operations Investment Areas. Lastly, seven percent of the program s budget was devoted to range sustainment, and 14 percent for leveraging with ESTCP. While technology transition is difficult, nine projects were called out as projects of distinction in FY10. These projects were particularly successful in demonstrating the use of an innovative technology or collecting critical information to enhance the efficiency of environmental management programs across the Navy.
