Abstract:

In an era of declining defense budgets, the North American defense industrial base faces the challenges of advancing and maintaining technological superiority with reduced government research and development funding. In response to this challenge, the North American Defense Industrial Base Organization NADIBO sponsored the Metal Matrix Composites MMCs assessment as a case study to assess the potential for emerging technologies to continue to advance and to remain viable in the current and projected economic environment. This assessment provides a methodology and framework for conducting similar studies in the future and identifies opportunities to enhance the level of joint effort between the U.S. and Canada in creating and sustaining a viable MMC marketplace.
