Saratov State University today opened a laboratory, which will develop protective and camouflage materials based on ultrathin fibers within the framework of the defense project of the “Defender of the Future”.
“The labs have three main areas of activity – creation of advanced materials for masking, protection and livelihood,” the president of SSU Leonid Kossovich said, quoted by Tass.
In particular, experts of the university will work to build defenses against aerosols using nanofilters. A camouflage material, which is developed in the laboratory, can reflect up to 95 percent of infrared radiation, Kossovich said. Other examples of equipment are designed to handle extreme conditions below minus 50 and above plus 50 Celsius, while heavy rain and sand storms.
