The nanothin green line

The U.S. Department of Defense is soliciting some interesting- and frightening-sounding grant proposals under its Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant program. But don't wait, act now, this round of proposals ends Jan. 14 at 6 a.m.

Here are just a couple examples of what nano can do for Uncle Sam:

Decontaminating Protective Skin Cream Effective Against Chemical Warfare Agents

    The development of a pre-or post-exposure decontaminating protective skin cream that that will protect exposed skin from the toxic effects of chemical warfare agents. More here
Novel Energetic Materials
    Develop innovative new energetic materials and/or energy release processes that will lead to significant enhancements in destructive energy delivered on targets, and/or significant improvement in munitions effectiveness for weapons designed to defeat hard and deeply buried targets (HDBT), for use in military operations in urban terrain (MOUT), or to defeat weapons of mass destruction (WMD). Energetic materials and/or energy release processes that reduce risk of collateral damage while increasing energy delivered on these targets of interest are also sought. More here
