dc.description.abstractThe use of nanomaterials has increased significantly in the military application to provide protection for troops. The US National Nanotechnology Initiative invested $1.39 billion in 2007 for nanotechnology research for defense applications. The large specific surface area, the small size, and the interface effects are some significant properties of nanomaterials, which make them suitable for military applications. The activated carbon is used to develop chemical warfare protective clothing for army because of their excellent adsorptive power. The US introduced the Joint Service Lightweight Integrated Suit Technology (JSLIST) program aimed to develop protective clothes. Nanofibers can be developed by melt-spinning, phase-separation, template synthesis, and electrospinning. Nanotechnology can provide better self-protection with improved sensing capabilities.
