February 12th, 2018 / By: / News

The State of Massachusetts has made available a $3.9 million grant to support the second phase of research and development at the Defense Fabric Discovery Center, a cutting-edge research hub that opened in October 2017. This award follows an initial $2.2 million grant to support the Center’s opening and brings the Commonwealth’s investment to the partnership between MIT Lincoln Laboratory and the U.S. Army Natick Soldier Research Development & Engineering Center to $6.1 million. The new award will help the Center expand research into how to apply emerging advanced fiber and fabric technologies for defense applications.
