U.S. Army develops engineered “second skin” for chemical-biological protection
NATICK, Mass. — Whether you’re thick-skinned or not, sometimes a second skin is crucial to survival, especially for a soldier.
Researchers at the U.S. Army Natick Soldier Research, Development and Engineering Centre are collaborating with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the University of California at Santa Barbara, the Air Force Civil Engineering Center and the U.S. Army Edgewood Chemical Biological Center to develop a “second skin” as a form of chemical-biological protection.
The Defense Threat Reduction Agency sponsors the project, which is a high-priority effort.
