dc.description.abstract The United States Department of Defence (DoD) is faced with remediating millions of acres of land in the continental United States (CONUS). The estimated cost of this effort is expected to reach into the billions of dollars. This expenditure takes away funding for training and supplying the war fighter, which is the primary function of DoD. In order to reduce these costs the DoD is sponsoring technology development efforts to reduce the overall cost of locating and remediating Munitions and Explosives of Concern (MEC). DoD sponsors millions of dollars on these technology development efforts, yet the Intelligence Defense Agency (IDA) has reported that many of these technologies do not reach those performing the remediation efforts. The thesis investigates and examines the technology transfer process regarding the remediation of MEC in the United States by both private contractors and other stakeholders are described. Past technology efforts are touched upon and a currently active technology demonstration/transfer efforts is described. en_US
