Funding available for environmental technology demonstration and validation

The Department of Defense (DoD) through the Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP), supports the demonstration and validation (Dem/Val) of environmental technologies that address priority DoD environmental requirements.

The goal of ESTCP is to transition mature environmental Science and Technology projects through the demonstration and validation phase, thereby enabling promising technologies to receive regulatory and DoD end user acceptance and to be fielded and commercialized more rapidly.

ESTCP is seeking pre-proposals from DoD organizations as well as non-DoD Federal organizations and the private sector as described below.

Pre-proposals are due by Thursday, March 9, 2006. Detailed instructions for DoD, Non-DoD federal, and BAA proposers (for example, details regarding the program's objectives, proposal submission requirements, the evaluation of proposals, and the individual topic areas) are available on the ESTCP Web site at: http://www.estcp.org/opportunities.

DoD organizations (Service and Defense Agencies) may submit pre-proposals for demonstrations of innovative environmental technologies in the following topic areas:

  • Environmental Restoration - innovative technologies for the detection, characterization, containment, and remediation of a wide range of contaminants in soil, sediments, and water.
  • Munitions Management - advanced geophysical sensor and signal processing technologies for the detection, discrimination, and remediation of Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) and technologies for range clearance and reduced generation of UXO.
  • Sustainable Infrastructure - natural resources management (for example, ecosystem management, threatened and endangered species, invasive species), facilities management (for example, solid waste, noise, water/air quality), and detection and evaluation of cultural resources.
  • Weapons Systems and Platforms - advanced alternative environmentally benign technologies and materials that reduce, control, or eliminate the waste and emissions associated with the manufacturing, maintenance, and use of DoD weapons systems and platforms.

The Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) is seeking proposals from Non-DoD federal organizations and the private sector for environmental technologies in the following topic areas only:

  • Military Munitions (formerly UXO)Detection, Discrimination, and Remediation - Technologies are needed that can detect and discriminate munitions ranging from 20 mm projectiles to 2000 lb. bombs from other items in the sub-surface; and, can cost-effectively remediate single munitions items whose location and depth have been identified; clear heavily contaminated areas where identification of individual isolated items is not feasible or cost effective; or treat scrap material, particularly in daily production quantities on ranges, to make it safe for disposal.
  • Range Sustainment - Treatment and control technologies are sought that specifically address the remediation or containment of range-related contaminants and residue such as metals, energetics, and propellants (for example, perchlorate). Control technologies are also sought for land rehabilitation to control erosion, excess sediment loading and off-site sediment movement due to training activities. Remedial and control technologies that allow for continued range operation during technology implementation, are deployable over large areas, or can serve to sustain areas subject to continued use are of particular interest. Characterization technologies are sought to cost effectively detect and delineate range contaminants in surface soils and groundwater.
