United States Department of Defense Provides $18. ...

National Nanomanufacturing Network - January 15, 2014 - 8:18am
Nanocomp Technologies, Inc., a developer of performance materials and products composed of its unique carbon nanotubes (CNTs), today announced it has been awarded $18.5 million in additional funding under the Defense Production Act Title III program ("DPA Title III") to supply CNT yarn, sheet, tape, and slurry materials for the program needs of the Department of Defense, as well as for commercial industrial markets. The mission of the DPA Title III Program is to create assured and affordable production of products that have been identified as essential for national defense, but where U.S. industry has not demonstrated an ability to deliver due to market conditions or other fiscal barriers. By means of a Presidential Determination, Nanocomp's CNT materials were identified to satisfy this critical gap. Initial funding of $2.2 M was provided by DPA Title III in 2011, along with substantial Company investments, enabling Nanocomp to construct a 30,000 square foot Pilot Plant, the nation's largest, and relocate its headquarters to Merrimack, NH.
