Abstract:The ability to custom build and integrate novel technologies into functionalized systems is the driving force towards the creation and advancement of active coatings systems. Active coating systems require the development and advancement of numerous technologies across various energy domains (e.g. electrical, mechanical, chemical, optical, biological, etc.). The U.S. Army is attempting to take these technologies and implement them into an active coatings system though the Active Coatings Technologies Program, thus creating the next generation of coating systems. These technologies give one the ability to work at the molecular level, atom by atom, to create large structures with fundamentally new molecular organization and yield advanced materials that will allow for longer service life and lower failure rates. The main objective of the U.S. Army’s Active Coatings Technologies Program is to develop technologies that can be used in combination to tailor coatings for utilization on Army Materiel. The goal of the ACT Program is to conduct research leading to the development of active materials and coatings systems for use on various military platforms, incorporating unique properties such as self repair, selective removal, corrosion resistance, sensing, ability to modify coatings’ physical properties, colorizing, and alerting logistics staff when weapon systems require more extensive repair.
