The U.S. Army, Navy, and Air Force face unique strategic, programmatic, and budgetary challenges related to corrosion planning, policy, and mitigation. Three officials, who serve in the position of Corrosion Control and Prevention Executive for their respective military departments, work closely with the DoD Corrosion Policy and Oversight Office. But each official also guides each department's autonomous management of corrosion-related challenges. In this trio of editorials, DoD's three Corrosion Control and Prevention Executives sum up their respective departmental missions, central challenges, and strategic approaches to mitigating corrosion on aircraft, ground vehicles, ships, submarines, missile systems, and facilities and infrastructure.

DoD Launches E-Portal Dedicated to Corrosion Training

Since 2005 the U.S. Defense Department's Corrosion Policy and Oversight Office has partnered with corrosion experts from industry and academia to educate tomorrow's workforce in controlling and preventing corrosion. To advance its training mission in 2013, the DoD Corrosion Office has launched a powerful Web portal that will make myriad corrosion courses, tutorials, and games accessible to the wider corrosion control and prevention industry. These courses were originally developed for the defense acquisition workforce.

DoD's new online resource is CorrConnect, a corrosion Web site now open to the general public in version 5.0. CorrConnect, found at www.corrconnect.org, offers a variety of training modules on the science of corrosion, its causes, and the technological methods required to prevent and mitigate it. Developed by Game Services Group, Inc. (GSGI) for the DoD Corrosion Office and a broad community of corrosion experts from all military services, CorrConnect received the imprimatur of NACE International members in 2012 when it won the MP Readers' Choice Corrosion Innovation of the Year Award.

U.S. and Canada Sign Agreement to Exchange Information

Collaboration Supports Sharing of Technical Data to Mitigate Corrosion

The long-awaited signing of the Corrosion Prevention, Control and Mitigation Technologies Data Exchange Agreement between the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and Canada's Department of National Defence (DND) took place on October 26, 2012, at the National Printing Building in Gatineau, Québec.

The agreement was signed by Daniel J. Dunmire, director of the DoD Corrosion Policy and Oversight Office, and Brigadier General Alexander Patch, Canada's DND director of General Land Equipment Program Management. The seeds for this collaborative agreement were planted on Aug. 18, 2011, when members of NACE International, The Corrosion Society, coordinated a meeting between DoD and DND after the NACE Northern Area Eastern Conference, Aug.15-18, 2011.
