Nano Terra's Surface Engineering Capabilities Used to Develop Advanced Aerospace Material and Applications

Published on May 11, 2009 at 9:15 PM

Nano Terra announced today a partnership with Honeywell Aerospace to develop functional surfaces for a variety of aerospace applications.

Under the long-term agreement, the companies will work together to utilize Nano Terra’s surface engineering technology to develop the fabrication of thin films for certain military and commercial aerospace applications designed specifically to enhance performance.

This relationship will combine Honeywell’s aerospace technology and systems integration expertise with Nano Terra science, which enables the efficient functionalization of surfaces.

“We believe this agreement will open the door to the exploration of a variety of new science and technology solutions,” said Bob Smith, Vice President of Advanced Technologies, Honeywell Aerospace. “Our goal is to deliver a new generation of innovative aerospace products and services.”

Myer Berlow, Nano Terra’s CEO, said, “We look forward to working closely with them to combine Nano Terra’s science with Honeywell’s vision for future avionics developments that will enhance their extensive product lines and systems.”

Nano Terra is a privately-held research and development company with expertise supported by more than 50 patents on work done by co-founder Dr. George Whitesides, the Woodford L. and Ann A. Flowers University Professor at Harvard University and winner of the prestigious Benjamin Franklin Medal in Chemistry in 2009.

The company leverages its expertise and intellectual property through co-development and other agreements with Fortune 500 industrial and manufacturing companies and the U.S. government. Nano Terra’s scientific methods can be used to fabricate advanced materials and devices that enhance existing products or create entirely new products in a broad range of areas, including: smart materials and surfaces; flexible electronics such as displays and electronic packaging; fuel cells, batteries and solar power devices; sensors; industrial products and processes; and a wide range of consumer goods.
