Mainstream Engineering Awarded Contract from the US Army to Demonstrate Self-Healing Optical Elements
U.S. Army sensor systems consist of the most advanced technology available and are routinely subjected to extreme environments including heat, cold, sand/dust, high winds, and intense lasers which can result in their damage. It is a burden upon the Army in terms of materiel and labor to replace these elements but an even greater threat is the tactical disadvantage of a system becoming inoperable during maneuvers. The Army needs self-healing optics that can be applied to its sensor systems.
