Research Institution

Sigma-K Corporation proposes to develop a Hermetic Textile Closure Hardware System to be used for Chemical Biological (CB) protective clothing and Collective Protection (COLPRO) portable shelter systems. Our Hermetic Textile Closure Hardware System design will allow the user to easily don and doff one's protective apparel. The system will remain intact during combat behavior. The closure interface will have life support reliability. During the Phase I work plan, different prototype configurations will be fabricated and tested. This work will lead to the Phase II work plan where the prototype designs will be field tested. This work will also lead to a product for civilian use which will be developed during Phase III. The projected market in the civilian use is projected to exceed $10 million in annual sales.
