APPLIED NANOSTRUCTURED SOLUTIONS LLC
Applied NanoStructured Solutions, LLC (ANS) is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Lockheed Martin Corporation dedicated to the rapid development and commercialization of nanotechnology. ANS has developed a revolutionary way to grow Carbon Nanostructures (CNS) directly onto variothem substrates through a continuous and production-scalable process.
CNS-infused fibers and materials are used to create next-generation composite materials, which feature multi-functional properties such as enhanced mechanical properties and metal-like thermal and electrical conductivity. These enhanced properties are useful in a variety of applications including EMI shielding and electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection for electronics, light weight conductive laminates for both EMI and Lightning Strike Protection, and injection moldable conductive thermoplastics. The overall focus is to develop affordable, cutting-edge nanotechnology-based solutions for the needs of both defense and commercial markets.
