Weapons Systems and Platforms

SERDP and ESTCP’s Weapons Systems and Platforms program area supports the development and demonstration of innovative technologies that enable DoD to reduce or eliminate the use of hazardous materials in its production and maintenance processes, reduce hazardous waste streams, and better understand and mitigate emissions and other environmental impacts that result from its operations.
