This work is in support of a pilot program for the Corrosion Policy and Oversight Office within the Office of the Undersecretary for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics, Corrosion Policy and Oversight. The research and technological investigations within have several objectives. One is to support graduate student research and education in the field of corrosion. This objective is met by the training of graduate students in the Materials Science and Engineering discipline to conduct the research listed and the subsequent placement of a high portion of them in US DoD, national laboratory, governments and industry professional positions. A second objective is the conduct of research studies that will support the implementation of other Corrosion Policy and Oversight Office projects that have been completed or are in progress. A third objective is to plan and conduct targeted studies that within about a 2 year period have a significant probability of delivering products to DoD interested end users that could begin along a path to implementation.
