Project Announcement: Identifying Hazardous Materials to Improve System Sustainment and Safety – Phase III

The US Army is partnering with industry and academia on a multi-phase CTMA initiative to advance commercial technologies and processes to more effectively and efficiently identify hazardous chemicals contained in parts and components found in military vehicles and other equipment. This phase will provide a common approach and toolset to qualify and validate the testing of safer alternative metal brackets and other mechanical and electromechanical components to replace hazardous heavy metal fasteners across a fleet of military vehicles.
