Abstract : The United States Marine Corps (USMC) has recently identified corrosion of vehicles as a major problem area. Higher life cycle costs of equipment, reduced operational availability, and excessive manpower requirements to maintain operability are some of the problems associated with corrosion. Current corrosion control methods have been identified as deficient, either in effectiveness or ability to be implemented. The Amphibious Warfare Technology Directorate (AWT) of the Marine Corps Systems Command (MARCORSYSCOM) tasked the Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) Marine Corrosion Branch to conduct research and development of new materials, procedures and design improvements which will reduce corrosion of USMC vehicles.
