Army, race team prove to be winning combo

Redstone Arsenal, AL | Posted on May 25th, 2010

A car racing icon and the Army's Aviation and Missile Research, Development and Engineering Center here have continued to collaborate to support the warfighter.

Jack Roush Sr., team owner and CEO of Roush-Fenway Racing, first partnered with AMRDEC in fall 2003, when Gen. Paul Kern, then the commander of the Army Materiel Command, directed the leveraging of racing technologies to support the Soldier.

The Roush team allowed AMRDEC to test and prove out new materials, coatings, processes and nanotechnology. Current efforts include sharing test data on windshield multi-layer tear-offs, like those used on Black Hawk helicopters, and diamond coatings for wear resistance.

"We have brought in Roush expertise and expanded the Army's prototyping capabilities through advanced materials and processes," said Kris Walker, AMRDEC team leader. "Given Jack Roush's many resources, vast aerospace capabilities, patriotism and love of Soldiers -- this is a very mutually beneficial partnership."
