Paper Abstract

This plenary presentation provides a big-picture perspective on the role of NDT/NDE technologies in addressing infrastructure needs, and NDE technology application opportunities in the National Technology Policy context. I will then focus on the Research and Special Program Administration regulatory responsibilities and research coordination activities relevant to the subject of NDE. Finally, on behalf of the Department of Transportation, I will discuss our strategic priorities in R&D and infrastructure renewal. Other DOT participants in this conference--representing the Federal Highway Administration, Federal Aviation Administration, Federal Rail Administration, and our maritime modes--will provide a window on the diverse NDE-related research and technology programs related their missions.
