2008 Defense Standardization Program Achievement Award

An Army Research Laboratory technical team was recognized by the Defense Department on March 12, 2009, for its role in the development of the specification, MIL-STD-3021, a Manufacturing Process Standard, entitled: Materials Deposition, Cold Spray. The 2008 Defense Standardization Program (DSP) Achievement Award was presented to the ARL team by DoD's Standardization Program Office. The DSP mission is to identify, influence, develop, manage, and provide access to standardization processes, products, and services for warfighters and the acquisition and logistics communities. In addition, the program promotes interoperability, and assists in reducing total ownership cost and in sustaining readiness.

2007 Defense Manufacturing Excellence Award

The Defense Manufacturing Excellence Award is given annually to a small working group in the defense manufacturing community. The winner is acknowledged as having made outstanding contributions to furthering manufacturing science and technology in the United States over the past fiscal year. The award acknowledges the contributions of those scientists, designers, engineers or managers of manufacturing who have sought to research, develop or practice ways and means to increase productivity, affordability or technical superiority of U.S. defense systems.

The National Center for Manufacturing Sciences (NCMS) managed a cross-industry collaborative team that developed the use of cold spray for corrosion control. The methods developed will impact Department of Defense by significantly reducing corrosion related maintenance across all military services. The NCMS team was recognized by a "Defense Manufacturing Excellence Award" presented by the National Center for Advanced Technologies (NCAT) on December 5, 2007 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The project participants included all the branches of the armed services: The Army ARL, Navy, Air Force and Marines, and the cross-industry companies: The Boeing Company, Delphi Corporation, Ford Motor Company, CenterLine Ltd. and Solidica.
