Panel discusses technological opportunities, challenges for U.S. Army

Abstract:
Scientists need to engage Soldiers and consider how new technology translates to the battlefield, according to a panel of five experts who discussed the Army's opportunities and challenges for fighting wars in the 21st century.

Dr. Vic S. Ramdass, director of the U.S. Army Logistics Innovation Agency, said his agency conducts cost-benefit analyses to determine whether a new technology is affordable.

Ramdass detailed one effort to save money. He said corrosion costs $10 billion per year across the U.S. military. His teams are researching methods to use nanotechnology to coat and protect equipment to reduce corrosion.
