US DoD funds nanotechnology to protect against lasers

Advanced Material Development (AMD) has been awarded a contract to develop protective films to be integrated into protective eyewear.

The contract with the Irregular Warfare Technical Support Directorate (IWTSD, formerly CTTSO) will fund AMD’s development of laser filtering coatings, based on AMD’s nanomaterial and photonic crystal technologies.

John Lee, CEO of AMD, says, “It is another very exciting step for AMD to receive an even greater level of interest from the US Department of Defense. Interest from the US DOD continues to demonstrate AMD’s ability to deliver innovative solutions to the growing challenges of today”.
