Abstract : The Dahlgren Division conducts full-spectrum research, development, test and evaluation (RDT and E), and fleet support on advanced materials and materials processes for application to ordnance and weapon systems. We emphasize various core technologies such as advanced ceramics, warhead materials, electrochemistry, polymer science, acoustic materials, composites, magnetostrictive materials, semiconductor materials, thermal management materials, radiation sensor materials, energetic materials, biotechnology, surface science, and nondestructive evaluation. Spin-off technologies for dual use are also actively pursued. This issue of the Digest includes articles on engineered materials, energetic materials, and the characterization of materials.
