About MegaRust 2021 - East Coast

MegaRust is scheduled for September 21-23, 2021 at the Hampton Roads Convention Center in Hampton, Virginia!

 

MegaRust is conducted annually to provide a consolidated focus on Navy corrosion issues. Corrosion is a major factor in the readiness and total ownership cost of naval systems and this conference is intended to provide updated information on programs, policies, standards and Fleet experience related to corrosion and to promote discussion and sharing of information on technologies and strategies for controlling corrosion.

The conference provides an impartial forum for dialogue between government and commercial organizations, and providers of coatings and corrosion control products, processes, technologies and solutions. Participants include representatives from military, industry, and government organizations involved with research and development, design, engineering, construction, maintenance, modernization and operation of naval systems that are potentially affected by corrosion. The conference covers all segments of the naval services including sea, air, Marine Corps, vehicles, and facilities.

Be on the lookout for more MegaRust details to come!

MegaRust Mid-Year Review

Thanks to everyone who joined us for the virtual Mid-Year Review meeting on February 23, 2021. As always, Dave Zilber led a well-organized session that mapped out the thinking around MegaRust 2021. Larry Bowden gave the Surface Team 1 CoP Update and "Q" updated on the NSRP SP&C Panel. Thanks to the high-level of participation there was a great Q&A after the three presentations.

This video of the event is provided to keep the corrosion community connected despite our current physical distance.
