Industrial application of nanotechnology
- There is an interesting article about industrial application of nanotechnologies, cited on Raging Bulls board of USGA (Msg. 4302) . Looks like actually the new materials have a lot of military interest (G-Lam seems to be some kind of nano fiber textile):NN: What are some of the other applications of nano-denier G-Lam ultra light weight anti-ballistic material?
USGN also projects that G-Lam will be used in a variety of other military applications including:
light weight XO skeletal body armor
portable blast containment units
turbine engine containment systems
anti-ballistic enhanced aircraft thermal/acoustical insulation
blanketsThe cited article is part of a longer review of different aspects of nanotechnology, mainly in defense.Short link: http://tinyurl.com/trzc
