Abstract
In this Phase II project, Akita Innovations will improve the performance of our polymeric antifog coating with respect to antifog performance, abrasion resistance, and manufacturability. We will demonstrate a manufacturable material and process that meets all Army MIL-PRF-32432 requirements for protective eyewear, with superior antifog performance compared to existing products, and supply the Army with at least 50 prototype sets of coated eyewear. We will also generate a plan for smooth transition of the technology to both military and commercial markets.
