IRC Launch Meeting
The NAVIN Consortium team will go through formal brainstorming and project down-selection processes...
It is envisioned the naval vehicles will benefit in many applications areas that take advantage of the emerging nanomaterials and sensors, e.g. nanostructured coatings for greater lifetimes; scattering of multiple phonon frequencies providing enhanced thermal management materials and thermoelectric devices; reduced diffusion distances in electrodes and cell architectures enabling simultaneous increases in battery power and energy densities; high surface area particles for sensing and novel catalyst applications; and, enhanced electron transport in nanowire composites providing potential for controlled dielectric constants.
For example, several Indian companies have successfully entered the naval shipbuilding arena and have undertaken major initiatives to acquire state-of-art-technology for naval systems and sensors.
