ER ESTCP POY 2021

Dr. Mandy Michalsen from the U.S. Army Engineer Research Development Center (ERDC) and her team led an ESTCP-funded project to demonstrate the use of standardized polymeric sampler procedures for quantifying freely dissolved organic contaminant concentrations in sediment porewater. For these significant contributions, Dr. Michalsen and her team received the 2021 ESTCP Project of the Year Award for Environmental Restoration for their project.

Mr. Jerry Back and his team from Jensen Hughes and the Naval Research Laboratory set out to identify an environmentally acceptable, PFAS-free firefighting formulation that met the performance of the legacy fire suppression foam. Through their efforts on this project, Mr. Jerry Back and his team have been awarded the 2021 ESTCP Project of the Year for the Weapons Systems and Platforms Program Area.

RC ESTCP POY 2021 - no caption

David Delaney from the U.S. Army Construction Engineering Research Laboratory of the Engineering Research and Development Center and his team led an ESTCP-funded project that demonstrated the use of a fixed-wing Ready Made RC Anaconda airframe that functions as a Data Mule by wirelessly transferring data from a ground-based camera trap to its onboard data storage device. For this significant work, David Delaney and his team received the 2021 ESTCP Project of the Year Award for Resource Conservation and Resiliency.

RC SERDP POY 2021

Dr. Nicholas Skowronski from the US Forest Service and his interdisciplinary team led a SERDP-funded project that developed and evaluated mechanistic, physics-based models that explicitly account for combustion, turbulent transfer, and energy exchange by coupling and scaling individual component processes. For this significant work, Dr. Nicholas Skowronski and his team received the 2021 SERDP Project-of-the-Year Award for Resource Conservation and Resiliency.

The 2021 ESTCP Project of the Year for Munitions Response was headed by Dr. Joseph Bucaro and Dr. Brian Houston from the Naval Research Laboratory and their team. The project team’s first goal was to demonstrate the ability of autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV)-based sonars to detect and classify proud and buried UXO in a shallow water area. The second goal was to assess the cost and performance of this technology.

MR SERDP POY 2021 Slideshow

The 2021 SERDP Project of the Year for Munitions Response was headed by Dr. Arthur Trembanis from the University of Delaware. Dr. Trembanis and Dr. Carter DuVal, who conducted work at the University of Delaware and is currently at the Naval Research Laboratory Stennis Space Center, expanded the research on munitions and explosives of concern (MEC) mobility and burial in cohesive sediments through a focused in-field study on the geotechnical properties of cohesive sediments that mostly contribute to the fate of MEC.

ER 21 Symposium No Caption

SERDP and ESTCP fund research and demonstrations to better understand chemicals of concern in the environment and help the Department of Defense (DoD) manage impacted sites. The 2021 virtual Symposium will offer numerous sessions for the Environmental Restoration Program Area, covering a range of topics related to per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) and groundwater remediation efforts. More

EW 21 Symposium no caption

ESTCP supports the demonstration of innovative technologies to improve Department of Defense (DoD) energy resilience and reduce energy and water use. At the 2021 virtual Symposium, sessions for the Installation Energy and Water Program Area will cover topics related to energy storage and microgrids, solutions to reduce carbon emissions, electric vehicles, and cybersecurity.
