Story Highlights

  • Representatives for WMRD recently presented at the 2011 Nanotechnology for Defense Conference.
  • 2011 Nanotechnology for Defense Conference co-hosted by ARL, Air Force Research Laboratory, Office of Naval Research, Defense Advanced Research Projects Administration (DARPA), and the Defense Threat Reduction Agency.

U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) representatives from the Weapons and Materials Research Directorate (WMRD) recently presented several oral and poster presentations as well as an integrated Research Development and Engineering Command (RDECOM) technical exhibit with ARL partners from the Aviation and Missile and Armaments Research, Development and Engineering Centers at the 2011 Nanotechnology for Defense Conference.

The conference was held in Bellevue, Wash., Oct. 24-27, and was co-hosted by ARL, Air Force Research Laboratory, Office of Naval Research, Defense Advanced Research Projects Administration (DARPA), and the Defense Threat Reduction Agency.

ARL participants included Rick Beyer, conference co-chair, Tanya Chantawansri, Shashi Karna, Joe Lenhart, Randy Mrozek, Josh Orlicki, Adam Rawlett, Pauline Smith, Jim Snyder, Eric Wetzel, and Steve Taulbee.

Also attending was Cindy Lundgren of the Sensors and Electron Devices Directorate. Danielle Foran, Sarah Hamdan, and Dominique Norton also attended and provided critical administrative support to make the conference a great success.

ARL's participation strengthened collaborative relationships with partners in nanotechnologies research from government, industry, academia, and generated contacts with potential new research and development partners.
