Sixty years of academic collaboration and thirty years of commercialization by a network of small businesses has delivered a mature technology of computational materials design and accelerated qualification grounded in a system of fundamental databases now known as the Materials Genome. Two computationally designed aircraft landing gear steels have been taken to full flight qualification employing this technology, and a focus of current application is the rapid development of the new alloys enabling the much-desired technology of additive manufacturing. The announcement in 2011 by the US President of a national Materials Genome Initiative acknowledging the reality of this technology has spurred global interest and rapid adoption by US apex corporations. Designed materials with broad market impact now span a range from consumer electronics to space exploration.
