This compendium consists of 12 technical papers, presented by the speakers from Industry, DRDO, Academia, Warship designers, Shipbuilders, Maintainers and Operators. They are aimed at identifying and inducting new technologies, materials and systems to make weapon platforms more robust and combat worthy at all times. Latest technologies and concepts pertaining to coatings, cathodic protection and asset management have been deliberated upon. The challenges faced by the operators in mitigating corrosion due to mission based deployments and lean manning of warships also have been dwelled upon.
The Compendium was prepared against the backdrop of the CII SIDM programme “Symposium on Corrosion Management” held from 6 - 7 December 2018, at Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh.
