In line with the need to provide improved components for vehicle applications, the U.S. Army Tank-Automotive Command is currently preparing a detailed technical plan covering materials research and development as related to automotive, tank, and allied equipment. The plan includes (1) establishing and analyzing future systems requirements with regard to design criteria, application, and environment, and (2) determining and outlining the major areas of material development and needs, including characteristics and properties based on the original analysis and requirements. It is hoped that with the successful completion of this plan for setting up a long range research and development program, it will be possible to obtain an accurate forecast of future materials requirements for Army vehicles.
