New Protective Fabric to be Developed Through Defence Innovation Realisation Fund

DMTC has been awarded new funding under the Defence Innovation Realisation Fund (DIRF), to address a lack of dermal protection solutions from aerosolised hazardous chemical, biological or radiological substances. The funding will be directed towards developing a membrane protective adsorbent composite technology, aerosol vapour fabric, aiming to exceed the capability of current systems through the use of a novel adsorbent-nanofibre membranes and will address formal ADF requirements as formulated under JP2110. DMTC will work with DSTO and a range of industry and research partners to achieve these aims.

The funding is one of six DIRF grants announced by Senator the Hon David Johnston, Minister for Defence at the Defence and Industry conference this week.
