Title: Dehydration of Water-Wet Nitrocellulose by Enhanced Leaching Operation
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Contract: N68335-01-C-0295
Award Amount: $69,433.00


A marine environmental compliance and analysis web-enabled toolset will be designed based on extensive prior experience with web and GIS enabled technologies in an environmental analysis and documentation environment. The objective of this researchproject is to develop an environmental tool capable of efficiently ensuring that the Navy has limited environmental impacts on the marine environment, while maintaining its force readiness and testing and evaluation programs. The toolset will consist oftwo parts. Part 1 will use existing data, acquisition policy documents, regulations and document design specifications to produce draft NEPA documents based on project requirements that are comparable to previous proposed actions. Part 2 will provideanalysis tools for evaluating systems, sub systems, and technology at various stages in the acquisition lifecycle and the corresponding actions that are planned (tests, fielding, OPEVAL, etc). Two key features define this product. One: all the data iscross-referenced by the action or equipment being used, the resource impacted, the location of the action, time of year, the environmental standard operating procedures and regulations. Two: all documents and methods included at the outset will referenceapproved data, so that new documents can be built using approved language and methods. As changes occur in regulations, approved language and methods, these data will update automatically with minor software enhancements.Broad applicability for theresultant product is anticipated, both within the Navy and in the general environmental community. Any organization doing environmental analysis and documentation will benefit directly from a tool that allows quick and accurate access to previous relateddocumentation. Although the content would change, no release of Navy information would occur, and the design would be useful elsewhere.
