Abstract : The objectives of this program were to develop a comprehensive understanding of ongoing government-sponsored environmental R&D activities important to the development of new ARPA program efforts in Environmental Science, and to assess the potential for integration of environmental concerns in the design, manufacture, and performance of defense systems, pertinent to incorporating environmental life-cycle considerations into the development of military systems and equipment. This included: (a) development of an electronic database which includes the major RW activities sponsored by the government in the area of environmental science; (b) investigation of key methods being attempted by industrial concerns to incorporate environmental considerations into the design, manufacture, and performance of major products; and (c) recommendations on new defense efforts which incorporate such environmental considerations into the development cycle of new systems.
