Superpave mix designs have been installed in this country for less than a decade, but have shown promising results thus far. The system provides for design with greater symmetry to the actual loading and aging of asphalt pavements. Although the new mix design utilizes the same materials as the old mix design, the resulting specification requirements are much tighter. While there have been some problems with the installation of the newly designed asphalt mixtures, these problems have been overcome by a good quality control program and close monitoring of the installation process. An asphalt pavement installed under the Superpave system carries with it a requirement for additional training of personnel that the agencies must provide. The United States Navy has a large Current Plant Value of asphalt pavements and could benefit greatly from technology that increases the life span of their facilities
