Abstract:

The objective of this Phase II SBIR program is to transition NanoSonic"s HybridSil Diver armor nanocomposite technology to next generation special operations forces (SOF) dry and wet suits for drastically enhanced multi-threat protection from laceration, abrasion, and puncture threats. Building from a strong technical foundation empirically validating the exceptional promise and scalability of down-selected fiber nanocomposite ensembles, NanoSonic will work with existing dry and wet suit manufactures to integrate high strength fabric weaves assimilating nanocomposite coatings molecularly engineered for an optimal balance of protection, comfort, and maneuverability. Multiple dry and wet suit prototypes will be constructed for SOF diver feedback and analysis. Through these efforts, NanoSonic will create an innovative, commercially transitionable nanocomposite technology that may be rapidly deployed for immediate SOF diver protection from a broad spectrum of laceration, abrasion, and puncture threats.
