US Army to Explain Military Interest in Nano Materials at Major Nanotechnology Conference This Week

Dallas, TX | Posted on September 30th, 2008

Military interest in nanotechnology has long been know and understood, but for scientists who have hoped for interest in C60, the Army's call for fullerenes is a welcome surprise. Before his death nearly three years ago, Rick Smalley, lamented to reporters that "we still haven't found a use for Bucky-Ball (C60)." Smalley led the team back in 1985 that discovered the Buckminster Fullerene, as C60 it is formally known, and shared the Nobel Prize for it.

Dr. Jacob Stanley of the U.S. Army R&D will explain military needs at nanotxUSA'08 this Thursday, October 2, at the Hyatt Regency Dallas convention hotel during International Nanotechnology Week.

Stanley will cover Nano Aluminum with goals to characterize physical/chemical interactions between engineered nanomaterials and environmental media.  Also to establish computational approach for predicting relevant characteristics (persistence, fate, toxicology) and developements to replace/enhance existing explosives, coatings and industrial abrasives, polishing of optics and jewelry, and drug delivery.

Stanley's abstract lists five primary areas to support the Army and the Corps:

Warfighter Support - geospatial information; system development; operational support; force protection; and force projection and sustainment

Installations - transformation; operations; and environmental issues

Environment - remediation and restoration; land planning, stewardship and management; threatened and endangered species; and cultural resources

Water Resources - infrastructure, water resources, environmental issues, and navigation; and flood control and storm damage reduction

Information Technology - informatics; geospatial technologies; computational services; high performance computing applications
