Our Core Objectives

DuraMAT provides a suite of easily accessible capabilities to facilitate applied research and development. Equally important, we understand the technical issues that you need to address and can help you develop a team using these capabilities to come up with solutions. We integrate the following core objectives into our research strategy.
