Partnership with the U.S. Army
Army research partners are vital to the ISN Mission. They collaborate on basic and applied research, provide guidance on the Soldier relevancy of ISN projects, and participate in transitioning (i.e., technological maturation and scale-up of the outcomes of ISN basic research).
The ISN is sponsored through the U.S.
Army Research Laboratory's Army Research Office in Durham, North Carolina. More than
just a sponsor, the U.S.
Army is an important partner in solving the problems of
the Soldier. While the ISN's nanotechnology approach is new,
scientists at the Army have been working to address Soldiers'
challengeslike excess weight and insufficient ballistic
protectionfor decades. The ISN maintains substantial interactions with many Army science and technology laboratories and centers, including:
