Abstract:

The objective of the proposed Navy SBIR program is to demonstrate economical, high performance, multifunctional bridge window coatings that offer high levels of electrical conductivity, high optical transmission, high levels of hydrophilicity (for anti-fogging and anti-reflection), and improved abrasion resistance for current Navy and DoD ship platforms. The immediate goal is to demonstrate improvements over other currently available bridge window designs, specifically targeting lower cost, EMI shielding, abrasion resistance, anti-fogging and de-icing functionality, high impact and shock resistance, high optical transmission, and with minimal optical anomalies for use with night vision goggles. NanoSonic has demonstrated that extremely low percentages of its novel nanomaterials are required to elicit high levels of conductance and tailored electromagnetic response on glass, polycarbonate, and acrylic substrates. Additionally, NanoSonic has done significant related work with similarly fabricated, extremely hydrophilic coatings (anti-fog, self-cleaning) that have inherent anti-reflective properties and are readily integrated with ship bridge windows. NanoSonic will work with systems integrators to address specific requirements for DoD and Navy applications.
