Research underway on graphene-based camoflage
Graphene, a sheet of latticed carbon just one atom thick, is a million times thinner than a human hair yet 200 times stronger than steel. When used either alone or with other materials graphene could help create new products and disruptive technologies in the defense and security arena. "One area we are looking at applying Graphene is in signature management -- the art of detection avoidance," Saab said. "Graphene, in combination with other natural substances, could be used to actively change the shape and topology of all manner of surfaces, including ships, aircrafts even military uniforms."
