ESTCP hosted a workshop to promote transfer of emerging munitions response technologies to the user community. Over 200 technology developers, contractors, regulators, and government project managers attended this event, which showcased rapidly maturing munitions detection, classification, and characterization technologies.

The workshop featured a technology overview session with presenters providing industry and regulatory perspectives on munitions response, the status of implementing advanced sensors and classification methods, and a summary of the current munitions response underwater technologies. A session highlighted implementation results from the ESTCP Classification Pilot Program and included a panel discussion on technology transfer.

During an outdoor session at the Denver Federal Center, participants had the opportunity to tour seven stations at which technology developers demonstrated a variety of cart-based and handheld platforms using electromagnetic induction (EMI). Classroom tutorials were offered on two software products developed to facilitate munitions response projects along with a tutorial in the field on the operation of a next generation sensor.
