A new technology developed by a Virginia-based small business could revolutionize the process of tagging and detection during field operations.
With support from the Air Force Small Business Innovation Research/Small Business Technology Transfer Program, NanoScience Solutions LLC created ultra-bright infrared fluorescent particles. Labels made from the particles are invisible without the use of special flashlights and goggles, so they cannot be detected by enemy forces.
This advancement can provide an advantage to special operations forces, who currently use ink or paint to mark landing lines that can’t be seen through dust or clouds. The particles could also help distinguish friendly forces from adversaries in combat, detect disturbed soil as part of perimeter security and provide a better alternative to tracking of assets, objects and targets.
