|Project Number (JTEG Assigned)||MC-07-0002|
|Project Title||Cold Spray/Kinetic Processing|
|Project Lead||Greg Russell (229) 639-8072 firstname.lastname@example.org|
|TI Goals Supported||P-1, C-2, S-3|
|Focus Area||Metal Working|
|Platform General||Ground Vehicle (Tracked or Wheeled)|
|Platform Specific||All ground vehicles and workload|
|Implemented Technology||Kinetic spray application equipment|
Current thermal spray technologies that are in use in the depots must overcome several shortcomings (heat input, lack of mobility, applications, etc.). Depots need a repair process that is effective for varied applications, is inexpensive, portable and easy to operate.
Develop kinetic spray combinations for use in various corrosive environments and a subsequent application process in a viable, relatively portable manner to reduce corrosion damages to vehicles thereby allowing for longer field use and less overall maintenance.
|Expected Result||Improved repair and corrosion capability.|
|Benefits||Provide depot with portable metal working technology|
|Comments||Equipment has not yet been budgeted.|
