Paper Abstract

Because of the budgetary stridency, the future of long term Federal support for Smart Materials and Structures Technology is uncertain. Because of the near-term focus of commercial R&D industry is unlikely to invest large amounts of private funds without near term product sales. Therefore there is a need to accelerate the development of products from the Smart Materials and Structure research. The Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) Advanced Materials and Processing Program endeavors to encourage productization through innovative government/industry programs. This paper discusses these issues in the context of the DoD dual-use technology strategy.
