The goal of the U.S. Army Smart Coatings™ Materiel Program is to conduct research designed to lead to the development of coatings systems for Army materiel incorporating unique properties such as self repair, selective removal, corrosion resistance, sensing, ability to modify coatings’ physical properties, colorizing, and alerting logistics staff when tanks or weaponry require more extensive repair. Major advances in the Smart Coatings ™ program thus far include the development of military grade active sensing packages to detect damage (corrosion, substrate integrity, etc) and environmental conditions (i.e. radiation, chemicals, temperature, gases, strain, etc). Specific sensors developed include electroactive polymers, micro flexible electronics, nanoclays, and electrochromics. Current and future efforts under this program include the integration and powering of these sensing packages into a multi-layered smart coatings ™ system capable of “thinking and reacting” autonomously.
