Visit the CorrDefense Web Site
Today, more than ever, the U.S. armed services are partnering with academia, industry, and other parts of government to extend the life cycles of their weapons and far-flung military facilities. Corrosion practitioners, and the knowledge they spread, are vital to one of the DoD's most critical missions—ensuring readiness and safety for the war fighter using technically sound and cost-effective practices.
Effective October 1, 2007, the DoD corrosion Web site underwent a transition from www.DoDCorrosionExchange.org to www.CorrDefense.org. The new site is a state-of-the-art corrosion prevention and control information management and distribution e-portal. CorrDefense is a free service for all individuals and organizations from industry, academia, and government who have an interest in corrosion, particularly as it relates to DoD.
CorrDefense is sponsored and managed by the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition Technology and Logistics (OUSD(AT&L)), Office of Corrosion Policy and Oversight. The Web site has been designated as one of the cornerstones of the DoD's long-term strategy for corrosion prevention and mitigation detailed in the General Military Law known as U.S. Code—Title 10, Section 2228.
The DoD Corrosion Prevention and Control (CPC) Integrated Product Team (IPT) is working hard to ensure that the CorrDefense Web site will contribute to DoD's fight against corrosion. Moreover, the team is working to ensure that it will be valuable to both visitors and members. The CPC IPT invites you to pay a visit to www.CorrDefense.org.
