Introduction
Dr. Hauger has a 45-year career as a researcher, teacher, program manager, and entrepreneur in areas related to science, technology and policy. For the last 15 years his work has centered on issues of climate change and environmental security, with a focus on the Indo-Pacific region. He brings to the field advanced degrees in both the natural sciences and the social sciences and a doctorate in Science and Technology Studies (STS).

Article
Full-text available
This preliminary study traces how climate change came to be viewed as a security issue in the United States through a review of policy documents and reports prepared for and by the US security sector. The paper draws upon the ideas of constructivist schools of security studies to provide an analytical framework for understanding the meaning of the...
Article
Full-text available
Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) provide an important resource to good governance involving complex issues of environmental security. We explore that role by looking at recent campaigns concerned with security at the coal–water nexus in India and China, undertaken by regional arms of Greenpeace, an important international NGO. We find that, at...
Article
Full-text available
This paper undertakes a direct, comprehensive assessment of the long-term sustainability of desertification rehabilitation in China under a plausible but worst case scenario where governmental interventions, in the form of payments for environmental services (PES), will cease. The analysis is based on household behavior as well as experimental data...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This presentation will examine the evolving impacts of increasing scientific knowledge about climate change and its anticipated environmental impacts on the development of regional security policy in the Asia-Pacific region. Bangladesh will serve as the exemplary case, within the context of regional security organizations including SAARC and the AS...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Increasingly over the last five years, national and international security organizations have come to recognize global warming as a potential threat to environmental security -- and thus as a challenge to national and regional security. Some island nations, including the Maldives and Kiribati, have concluded that climate change poses an existential...
Article
In 1979, under pressure from Congress, the National Science Foundation (NSF) founded the Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR). Initially conceived as a means to foster scientific competitiveness in states that had not historically won many federal research dollars, EPSCoR has evolved into a program that fosters science-ba...
Article
This chapter considers the value of an education in science, technology, and society studies (STS) for managers or analysts in knowledge-based industries, government, and other professions who are concerned with managing the course of technological change. By technological change, I mean intentional social innovation in the form of new tools and ne...
Article
This paper is a survey of various issues regarding the efficacy and applicability of dual-use concepts to promote greater national security, both military and economic. It responds to five questions posed to the study team regarding the history, recent experience, and possible future of dual-use strategies to support and further the missions of the...
Article
Four tests evaluated the need for and effectiveness of detectable warning surfaces at curb ramps for pedestrians with blindness. Results found that the effectiveness of the detectable warning surfaces depended on other aspects of the design of the intersections and on factors such as the density of traffic and the traveler's skills.

Article
Full-text available
On April 27,1995, IDA hosted a round table to discuss the rationales for public sector technology investments and the means to evaluate and measure their impacts. Attendees included senior government officials from the White House, Departments of Defense, Commerce, and Energy, and NASA; senior industry participants; and distinguished academics. Thi...
Article
The nation's first point focussing solar industrial process heat plant was designed, installed, and operated for evaluation at Capitol Concrete Products. The solar collector, which was designed and fabricated by PKI, was incorporated into a plant to provide steam for curing concrete blocks in an autoclave at pressures of 15 to 60 psig. The plant wa...
Article
A system feasibility test to determine the technical and operational feasibility of using a solar collector to provide industrial process heat is discussed. The test is of a solar collector system in an industrial test bed plant at Capitol Concrete Products in Topeka, Kansas, with an experiment control at Sandia National Laboratories, Albuquerque....
Article
Verification testing of a solar collector was undertaken prior to its operation as part of an industrial process heat plant at Capitol Concrete Products in Topeka, Kansas. Testing was performed at a control plant installed at Sandia National Laboratory, Albuquerque, New Mexico (SNLA). Early results show that plant performance is even better than an...
Article
An experiment is planned, conducted and evaluated to determine the feasibility of using a Power Kinetics' Fresnel concentrator to provide process heat in an industrial environment. The plant provides process steam at 50 to 60 psig to two autoclaves for curing masonry blocks. When steam is not required, the plant preheats hot water for later use. A...
Article
The Department of Defense maintains an inventory of over 1,800 MW of engine-generators 15 KW and larger, with an estimated procurement rate of over 140 MW/year. Nearly the entire requirement could be met by advanced heat engines of the types being developed as point-focussing, distributed receiver power plants. A conceptual system consisting of a h...
Article
Intermediate markets for photovoltaic power systems provide a necessary link between the present market and long term energy saving markets. Assuming that achieving Department of Energy (DOE) production volume goals are a prerequisite for attaining the corresponding price goals, then the present market coupled with large DOE purchases can only supp...
Article
The intention of the Program is to provide significant, cost effective incentive for the accelerated development of an innovative highly competitive industry capable of producing low cost, quality, photovoltaic systems. This industry would be capable of supplying the private sector with a major source of clean, non-depletable electrical energy. As...
