ADA Technologies, Inc. received an $80,000 contract
from the U.S. Navy for development of high performance fiber reinforced
polymer (FRP) composites for use in the design and manufacture of
robust and reliable submarine and submersible hatches. ADA, in
partnership with Alion Science and Technology, Mystic, CT bagged the
six-month contract.

The Phase I research focuses on the use ofnanomaterials to greatly enhance the interlaminar properties of FRP
materials. ADA's strategy is based on identifying nanomaterials that are
relatively inexpensive and available in large volumes. "We expect ADA's
material technology to provide dramatic improvements in key material
properties, while having minimal impact on material and manufacturing
costs," said Douglas Campbell, ADA R&D program manager.
"Furthermore, we are especially excited as it addresses a significant
performance limitation of FRP composites and thus would have broad
application to not only the marine industry, but also the aerospace,
automotive, renewable energy, sporting goods and virtually all
industries that make use of FRP composite material."

    interesting! i just wonder about the time limit of the contract, as 80,000 dolar is not too much for research~~~~~~~
