Abstract:
LITMUS, LLC, a leading global technology innovations company, today announces that its majority owned subsidiary, LITMUS Defense, LLC, has entered into a formal agreement with the U.S. Naval Air Warfare Center, Weapons Division (NAWCWD), for the research and development of carbon nanostructures in advanced rocket motors and warheads.

LITMUS in Exclusive US Naval Air Warfare Center Agreement

UK | Posted on April 11th, 2007

The NAWCWD is the premier research and development center within the Naval Air Systems Command, conducting basic and applied research of advanced technologies related to tactical naval air weapons systems. NAWCWD has extensive expertise, multi-billion dollar research and test facilities and information in energetic systems.

The use of high quality carbon nanotubes and nanofibers into various rocket motor and warhead components and propellants can provide multiple enhanced properties, such as increasing thermal conductivity and performance, increasing the strength of materials and alloys, and reducing the weight and size of structural components, thereby dramatically affecting the structure and propellants of rockets to provide greater thrust per second into a system.

Bill Nevius, President of LITMUS Defense, said: "We have significant knowledge and experience in the complex chemistries involved with the successful integration of carbon nanostructures. As such, we are uniquely qualified as a commercial partner to conduct the required research and to then commercialize the technologies resulting from these efforts."

Mark Diggs, Chief Executive Officer of LITMUS, said: "We are confident that this collaboration will prove highly beneficial for both parties. It will enable us to leverage significant government assets and knowledge towards the rapid development and commercialization of advanced technology applications and the potential for innovation and creation of new products is an exciting prospect."
