Computer Modeling Simulation of One Possible Pathway for Breakdown of TNT in Water

In support of our military forces, SERDP and ESTCP fund a variety of efforts to ensure the sustainability of our testing and training ranges, including mitigation of the release of munition compounds. One aspect of these mitigation efforts is the prediction of the potential fate and transport of new munition compounds under development. More

Kinetic Super Resolution Long-Wave Infrared Images of Buildings Indicate Sources of Energy Leaks

With more than 300,000 buildings across the United States, the Department of Defense (DoD) needs to rapidly locate and identify sources of energy leaks to help reduce facility energy consumption. A new technology developed by Essess and demonstrated by ESTCP has the potential to do just that, at a fraction of the time of traditional handheld building infrared (IR) thermography.  More 


Since 2000, SERDP has funded research to develop military-specific emission factors and dispersion models to aid in the quantification of fugitive dust emissions. This research provides information to develop cost-effective management strategies to mitigate the potential impact from military activities. More

Blog for MR 6-16-14

ESTCP and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) are sponsoring an end-to-end demonstration of Classification technologies in a Treatability Study at the former Camp San Luis Obispo, California. This study aims to go beyond demonstrating technical success to defining a complete process for implementation, beginning with setting specific objectives for what must be removed from the site in conjunction with regulators at the start to verification that the objectives were met at the end.

Tin whiskers are electrically conductive, crystalline structures that grow from surfaces where tin is used as a final finish and from lead-free solder joints. Several SERDP and ESTCP efforts are underway to understand the mechanisms of tin whisker formation and growth and to develop strategies to mitigate whisker formation and the damage that can occur.

In an effort to summarize recent advances in characterization, data interpretation and regulatory thinking that have become standard practice in our approach to monitored natural attenuation (MNA), ESTCP investigators have updated guidance in the form of frequently asked questions. More


On May 6, 2014, the U.S. Global Change Research Program released the Third National Climate Assessment (NCA), the authoritative and comprehensive report on climate change and its impacts in the United States. More



In 2010, the Obama Administration pledged solar panels would return to the White House and on Friday, May 9, 2014 technicians completed the installation. The Department of Defense (DoD) via ESTCP’s Energy and Water (EW) Program Area, began funding solar demonstrations on military installations in 2011. More

The DoD has been aggressively restoring the longleaf pine ecosystem on its lands for nearly 20 years, not only to meet listed species needs but also to improve training realism and the sustainability of its training and testing landscapes. Dr. Lisa Samuelson of Auburn University and her team are currently developing a modeling system capable of simulating the “typical” longleaf pine restoration sequence. More

Andersen AFB Guam

The latest demonstration in the ESTCP Classification Pilot Program is underway at the North Ramp Parking Area (NRP) of Andersen AFB, Guam. The NRP area is undergoing a munitions and explosives of concern (MEC) removal action in advance of military construction (MILCON) activities. More
