Sustainable Product Demonstrations

Sustainable Product Demonstrations

The Department of Defense (DoD) Sustainable Technology Evaluation and Demonstration (STED) Program identifies sustainable product need areas through outreach activities to DoD Installations, Military Departments and DoD Components. The DoD STED Program reviews these need areas to identify sustainable product demonstration opportunities. The DoD STED Team then examines performance requirements, identifies sustainable demonstration products and performs product demonstrations in coordination with demonstration stakeholders.
