Abstract : This report describes the evaluation demonstration/validation project of new nanocomposite packaging for the military by the Natick Soldier Research, Development, and Engineering Center (NSRDEC), which was supported by the Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP). The materials that were evaluated were developed via the earlier NSRDEC Environmental Quality Basic Research (EQBR) and the NSRDEC Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP), as well as industry-based efforts in the area of nanocomposite packaging films that have matured into commercially available products.
