Quick response evaluation

UDRI awarded $45 million-ceiling Air Force contract for quick-reaction evaluation program

The University of Dayton Research Institute has been awarded a six-years, $45 million-ceiling Air Force Research contract to continue its Quick-Reaction Evaluation of Materials and Processes program.

The follow-on contract allows UDRI to continue to provide the Air Force with rapid support in the areas of component failure analysis, material and mechanical property evaluations, and corrosion assessments on a wide variety of systems, work it has been performing for more than 40 years.

UDRI will investigate materials and process-related issues in advanced aerospace systems as well as aging systems, from the development phase to production and operational phases. The program encompasses the areas of structural materials, electronic materials, corrosion control, protective coatings, and materials testing and evaluation.

The program will also facilitate the transition of emerging materials and process technologies to various Air Force and Department of Defense systems.

Work will be performed primarily by researchers in UDRI's Structural Integrity division located at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base as well as on campus.

Each year, sponsored research programs at the University of Dayton provide real-world research opportunities to nearly 300 undergraduate and graduate students working with more than 500 professional and faculty researchers from the Research Institute, the School of Engineering and the College of Arts and Sciences.
