On Monday, July 30th, Maryland Congressional Defense Legislative Staffers representing the offices of Senator Ben Cardin, Senator Van Hollen, Congressman Ruppersberger, Congressman Sarbanes, and Congressman Hoyer visited HEMI to learn more about our CMEDE-related activities and to view our laboratories.
The Center for Materials in Extreme Dynamic Environments is a multi-institutional collaborative research center located within the Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute at Johns Hopkins University. The Center brings together academia, government, and industry to advance the state of the art for materials in extreme dynamic environments.
The Materials in Extreme Dynamic Environments (MEDE) program is investigating three material systems which have significant potential for improving protection performance. Johns Hopkins University leads the MEDE Collaborative Research Alliance which includes partners across 10 states, the United Kingdom, and Germany. These partners, in close collaboration with the Army Research Laboratory, are leading the development of a materials-by-design capability integrating state-of-the-art experiments, advanced computational models, and synthesis and processing.
