The MIT Institute for Soldier Nanotechnologies will offically open April 2003.
Researchers are working to develop sensor patches and reactive coating that could respond to chemical and biological agents with antidotes or determine whether a soldier is dehydrated and adjust accordingly. They are trying to make soft materials rigid, to recycle water from a soldier's body, and to create "intelligent" fabric by weaving computer and communications technology into a uniform.
See a previous post for more details on this project.
