The United States Department of Defense (DoD) has developed a comprehensive strategy to combat corrosion throughout the armed forces. As resources directed toward corrosion prevention become increasingly constrained, acquisition-level management decisions, maintenance practices, and sustainment paradigms become critical to prolonging the life cycle of materiel. Corrosion control and prevention throughout the DoD costs the United States $22.5 billion each year. Consequently, DoD actively seeks new corrosion mitigation and prevention technologies, processes, products, and management systems for those who acquire and sustain military weapon systems and infrastructure.


As the U.S. DoD continues to develop vital corrosion prevention and control programs, it welcomes the expertise and support of its partners. The 2015 conference will mark the inaugural presence of the department’s allied defense ministry partners--including the United Kingdom, Canada, France, Germany, New Zealand and Australia--whose participation will ensure the expansion of corrosion control efforts worldwide. The 2015 DoD - Allied Nations Technical Corrosion Conference will allow a meaningful exchange of corrosion control information between the U.S. DoD and its allied defense ministry partners, industry, academia, and government agencies so that all entities can collectively seek to reduce the negative impacts of corrosion on global readiness and safety.


The Technical Program for the 2015 Department of Defense – Allied Nations Technical Corrosion Conference will include presentations on the following topics: 

  • Corrosion Management
  • Corrosion Policy
  • Life Cycle & System Engineering Management
  • Corrosion Prevention & Control Strategies
  • Technology, Transitions, & Evaluations
  • Education, Training, & Fleet Support
  • Corrosion Modeling
  • Corrosion Fundamentals
  • Corrosion Inhibitors
  • Student Research In Progress
  • Accelerated and Outdoor Exposure Testing
  • Corrosion Monitoring & Assessment
  • Paints and Coatings
