AMD, Advanced Material Development has secured a contract from the Defense, Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL), valued at £125,000, says Graphene Info. This contract will allow for the early development of the study of graphene-based protection systems.
Professor Alan Dalton, Chief Scientific Advisor at AMD said: “At AMD, we make use of the nanoscale to deliver material properties and characteristics which would otherwise be impossible to realize, changing the way they react to the environment in which they operate.”
John Lee, CEO of AMD, said: “Several elements of our proprietary technology to develop the specialist inks have benefitted greatly from the support of Defense and Security Accelerator (DASA) funding. The WSRF funding is the next step in this development, allowing us to make sure the technologies stand up to the rigors of real-life applications. Not only will this prove the inks’ potential on defense and security applications, but it also allows us to exploit that development in our commercial markets.”
