Major Goals: Founded in 2002, the Institute for Soldier Nanotechnologies (ISN) is a U.S. Army University-Affiliated Research Center (UARC). The ISN was designed as three-member team to leverage the unique capabilities of the U.S. Army, industry, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). The ISN mission is to help the Army and other U.S. military services enable innovative capabilities for Soldiers and warfighters through basic research on nanotechnology by transitioning promising outcomes of that research in partnership with the Army, other U.S. military services, and industry. This mission includes not only decreasing the weight that Soldiers and other warfighters carry but also improving blast and ballistic protection, creating new methods of detecting and detoxifying chemical and biological threats, and providing physiological monitoring and medical treatment. Information on the Major Goals of each ISN 6.1 project described in this report is included in the compiled Report, attached. Accomplishments: Information on the Accomplishments of each ISN 6.1 project described in this report is included in the compiled Report, attached. Training Opportunities: ISN trains many MIT students and post-doctoral researchers each year. More specific information can be found in the Participants and Students sections of the reporting website. Results Dissemination: ISN shares information about its research in a variety of ways. Each year, ISN hosts hundreds of visitors from the military, academic, and industrial communities. Additionally, ISN researchers are extremely productive in publishing articles in scholarly journals and speaking at scientific conferences. ISN also hold a biennial technical meeting to which more than 100 industry and DoD colleagues are invited, as well as technical seminars on an occasional basis each year.
