U.S. soldiers might someday be able to carry around small, mobile power supplies thanks to nanotechnology research at the University of Missouri-Columbia.
The school's nanotechnology researchers were recently awarded a $10 million defense-related contract to develop the new power storage devices, as well as minuscule shock-wave generators that could be used to detonate military explosives.
The university is partnering with the Picatinny Arsenal in New Jersey to create the devices.
MU graduate student and nanotechnology researcher Steve Apperson described the envisioned power gadget as "sort of a portable device that they would use for charging batteries or powering small equipment. Basically, it's supposed to be a compact portable system."
