Prospects for nanomaterial windows take flight

A window on military aircraft, whether it is a canopy on a fighter jet or the covering on an infrared sensor, faces a far different environment from its counterpart on land. It must be exceptionally sturdy to withstand being battered by debris at high velocities, yet remain transparent to allow the pilot to see out, or the infrared signal to reach in.
The Department of Defense, Air Force and Navy hope to eliminate that and similar tradeoffs using nanomaterials.
