SP-14 Product Design and Material Technologies

The Ship Design and Material Technologies covers the full spectrum of ships, systems and equipment for design, construction, and sustainment.  The initiative investigates new materials, processes, technologies, commonality and standardization principals with the goal of adding value for future programs, reducing the cost of new designs, minimizing the cost of maintenance and repair and controlling the total ownership cost to the U.S. Government and the commercial sector.
The SDMT Panel is focused on projects that provide increased capabilities and cost reduction initiatives across the complete spectrum of design processes (concept to detail) and the use of advanced materials to support the rapid and efficient development, construction, sustainment, and disposal of the next generation vessels.
