Presented in Partnership with:


ALEXANDRIA, VA, July 30, 2019—The Department of Defense’s (DoD) Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP) and Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP) are seeking to fund projects aimed at the development and demonstration of non-fluorine based firefighting formulations and/or technologies. Funding for these projects will begin in Fiscal Year 2020.

SERDP invests across the broad spectrum of basic and applied research, as well as advanced technology development. The development and application of innovative environmental technologies will reduce the costs, environmental risks, and time required to resolve environmental problems while, at the same time, enhancing and sustaining military readiness.

The goal of ESTCP is to promote the transfer of innovative technologies through demonstrations that collect the data needed for regulatory and DoD end-user acceptance. Projects conduct formal demonstrations at DoD facilities and sites in operational settings to document and validate improved performance and cost savings.
Proposals responding to these solicitations will be selected through a competitive process. All proposals are due by Thursday, September 12, 2019 by 2:00 p.m. ET. The topics and detailed instructions are available on the SERDP and ESTCP website.


Webinar for the SERDP and ESTCP Solicitations: SERDP and ESTCP Director Dr. Herb Nelson and Weapons Systems and Platforms Program Manager Dr. Robin Nissan will conduct an online seminar “SERDP and ESTCP Funding Opportunities” on August 9, 2018, from 1:00-2:00 p.m. ET. This briefing will offer valuable information for those interested in new SERDP and ESTCP funding opportunities. During the online seminar, participants may ask questions about the funding process, the current SERDP and ESTCP solicitations, and the proposal submission process.

Pre-registration for this webinar is required. If you have difficulty registering, please contact the SERDP Support Office at or by telephone at 571-372-6565.
