SEMP monitoring and research infusion technology transition plan
Fehmi, Jeffrey S.; Balbach, Harold E.; Goran, William D.
Special ReportAbstract: The SERDP Ecosystem Management Project (SEMP) nears the successful end of its initial phase-establishing monitoring and researching indicators and thresholds at Fort Benning. This technology transition plan represents the concept and planning document to ensure the SEMP work reaches the critical and maximum audience. There are three main products from SEMP for technology transition: research outcomes, candidate indicators, and lessons learned. Technology transition will include three phases: Fort Benning, installations along the Fall-line region, and beyond DoD. Work on the remaining phases will take the forefront after the transition to Fort Benning. Research for the Fall-line phase is already under way through the Fall-line testbed projects and the Fall-line transition has also begun through a symposium. The Fall-line phase is projected to include all the military services rather than focusing solely on the Army. The final phase of the technology transition is to make the monitoring available to some of the national networks and other resource management agencies.
