    Is this IUID Mark qualification test and report data still available through DAU, or has this since been transferred to another entity? If it's still available through DAU, please provide more information that will help me to find this data. If it's no longer available through DAU, is there information that can be provided as to the organization from which the data can be obtained?

The goal of this venture is to coordinate a consortium approach towards performing, publishing, and sharing non-proprietary information for the following areas:


    a. IUID marking methods (dot peen, laser/chemical etch, direct ink, label, etc.).


    b. Material types and finishes (80% common to most of Industry).


    c. Environmental criteria (80% common to most of Industry or use worst case).


    3. NASA-STD-6002 also provides an overview of DPM methods and practices.
