DoD Corrosion Policy and Oversight Office

The Department of Defense Corrosion Policy and Oversight Office has announced the appointment of three new Corrosion Prevention and Control Executives from within the military departments, as well as a new Deputy Air Force Corrosion Executive. These four officials will coordinate with the DoD Corrosion Office director and Corrosion Prevention and Control Integrated Product Team to implement strategies, determine objectives, and execute plans, procedures and roadmaps to reduce the overall impact of corrosion on U.S. military assets and facilities.

Glenn Carthron, U.S. Army Corrosion Control and Prevention Executive

Glenn Carthron has been appointed as Army’s Corrosion Control and Prevention Executive under the Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Army (Acquisition Policy and Logistics). In his current position, he is responsible for the Army’s Corrosion Program and developing the Army’s corrosion prevention and control policy. Glenn focuses his efforts on logistics policy issues and oversight for the Army’s materiel policy, and he is recognized as an authority in concept development for both logistics and maintenance activities.

Mr. Carthron’s other key assignments include serving as the Army’s Aviation Logistics and Safety Officer for the Army G-4 logistics organization, where he developed maintenance and readiness policy and procedures for the Army’s aviation fleet. He also led efforts to implement a battalion/brigade-level enterprise maintenance and logistics management information system, providing a robust and reliable capability to improve aviation maintenance management in support of rapidly evolving operations.

Prior to assuming his current duties, Mr. Carthron served in the Army’s Acquisition Policy Directorate under the Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Army (Acquisition Policy and Logistics) where he was responsible for translating DoD policies and other guidance into executable language for integration into the Army’s acquisition framework, risk management processes, and future Army acquisition policies and procedures.

Matthew M. Sheehan, Department of the Navy Corrosion Control and Prevention Executive

Matthew M. Sheehan has been appointed as the Department of the Navy’s Corrosion Control and Prevention Executive. In this role, Mr. Sheehan is responsible for developing the policy, guidance, and investment of corrosion prevention and control activities with DoD Corrosion Office, Program Executive Officers, and relative major subordinate commands. In addition to leading the Maritime Corrosion Enterprise, he serves as the Deputy Technical Warrant Holder for Future Force Architecture and as the Deputy Fleet Architect to the Office of the Chief of Naval Operations.

Previously, Mr. Sheehan focused on shipyard installation, modernization, and readiness initiatives by maturing and helping to transition terahertz imaging for non-destructive evaluation and inspection. Prior to this period, Mr. Sheehan became the Advanced Capability Build/Technical Insertion’s baseline engineer, where he collaborated with and led groups of element engineers to ensure the success of the Aegis Combat System integration throughout the design, testing, evaluation and supportability lifecycle. In this role, he conducted groundbreaking work on cyber-security requirements and techniques that helped spur the Navy’s creation of a new warfare area titled “Information Operations.”

Dennis M. Miller, U.S. Air Force Corrosion Control and Prevention Executive

Dennis M. Miller, a member of the Senior Executive Service, has been appointed as the Air Force Corrosion Control and Prevention Executive, and also serves as Associate Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Science, Technology and Engineering under the Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Air Force (Acquisition). He is responsible for providing technical advice and counsel to the Air Force Acquisition Executive on a broad range of engineering and technical management areas. He provides engineering and technical management direction on systems engineering, corrosion control, capability developmental planning, and the functional management of more than 14,000 military and civilian scientists and engineers. In addition, he prepares policy, guidance, and advocacy for the Air Force’s annual $2 billion science and technology program.

Mr. Miller began his career in the U.S.Air Force. Throughout his active-duty Air Force and civilian career, he held various operational, acquisition and sustainment positions. During his active-duty period, Mr. Miller researched, developed, acquired, integrated, tested, evaluated and operated various space and missile systems including missile defense systems, Global Positioning Systems (GPS satellites, user equipment, ground systems), military satellite communications and ground systems, weather systems, Cheyenne Mountain programs, early warning radar systems, space and control systems, Space-Based Infrared Satellite, research and development satellites, and satellite command/control and operations.
