Abstract
NanoPlatelets (NPs) created of metal hydroxides present entirely new and previously unknown set of morphologes/properties and are a virtually new frontier and unstudied field of Material Science and may be leveraged into many of todays DoD and Comercial Technical Challenges and applications. Case in point is SOCOM's Defense Mitigation and Decontamination of military aircraft and equipment and electronics. Validation and Proof-of-concept of the; efficacy of NanoPlatelets NPs, nontoxic aspects, environmentally and electronically friendly prophylactic pre-treatment and/or post-treatment. These treatments are designed to address CB threats and challenges against interiors and exteriors of aircraft and possibly other vehicles/equipment, inclusive of electronics and other sensitive operational equipment. Currently existing Chemical and Biological (CB) defense technologies for decontaminating or neutralizing threat of CB agents can damage sensitive equipment and create significant environmental, logistical, and operational burdens on the mobility and utility of Military Assets. Preliminary testing of NPs indicate that NPs have a high potential of solving these challenges.
