Abstract
We propose to develop a multi-functional coating technology using a three-component nanocomposites to achieve excellent syperhydrophobicity, anti-icing, enhanced track-resistance, and high dielectric breakdown strenght. The coating will be compatible with current Navy existing VLF device materials and be ease of applications in outdoor field, and be long lasting requiring infrequent applications.
