3031 DoD-wide Cold Spray Technology Roadmap

To develop a DoD-integrated Cold Spray technology roadmap while identifying the current state, common needs and actions, technology investment gaps, and priorities. Army, Air Force, and Navy – along with contractors and research partners – have been developing and implementing Cold Spray technology for more than two decades.

Throughout the early stages of implementation, Cold Spray demonstrated a reduction in maintenance materials and costs, while increasing readiness. DoD-wide
awareness of ongoing and planned Cold Spray programs is critical to expand its applications and benefits. The DoD integrated roadmap coordinates of individual Service investments in Cold Spray technology, and communicates current needs and planned activities, while enhancing collaboration, streamlining efforts and facilitating joint strategies.
