MSU robots to coat Navy cockpits

Abstract:
A combination of robotics, nanotechnology and scientific know-how got some long-awaited exposure Wednesday morning.

Members of Missouri State University's Center for Applied Science and Engineering demonstrated a robotics line they developed to apply a nano-composite hard coat to the canopies of U.S. Navy jets.

The coating not only makes canopies more scratch-resistant, it also reduces the static electric charge that can build up on plastic which reduces the chances a ground crew member will receive an electrical shock when the plane lands on an aircraft carrier.
