Single Layer Non-Woven Material with desired functionalities of Chemical and Biological, Thermal Protection, Water Repellency, and Durability would be similar to NST funded research material integrated with archaic Activated Carbon Fiber technology. EYT contends a lightweight composite material can be achieved by integrating, adapting functional components with low risk and desired functionalities for Uniform Combat Material. Although Nonwovens provide correct guidance, there are some fundamental issues: Not Quiet, Poor CD Strength, Poor Hand, cannot be Post Treated and do not yield to body movements. Activated Carbon technology is deficient technology for CB protection - absorption of environment pollutant irrespective of CB threat). EYT proposes to develop and demonstrate the following technologies to generate a multi-layer composite that has: o CB Protection through Controlled Air Permeable Fibrous Electro-Spun and Melt Blown Fibrous Membranes o Application and Integration of Reactive Nanoparticle Chemical Treatments for Neutralizing CB Warfare Agents o Bi-Layer no Melt No Drip fabrics for Fire and Thermal Protection o Superhydrophobicity - grafting low surface tension chemicals EYT has teamed with leading academic (UMass, UTK, MIT) and Industrial partners (Polartec, BlackDiamond) for this effort integrating Reactive Nanoparticles for CB Neutralization, controlled airpermeable fibrous membranes and No Melt No Drip F/R fabrics.
