iRobot Presentation

  1. 1. Soldier Nanotechnologies By: i-Robot Mount Olive Middle School Ryan Watral Kaiwal Patel Chris Lorenz David Mercado Nicholas Morello www.irobotmoms.blogspot.com
  2. 2. What is Nanotechnology? <ul><li>Nanotechnology is the world of atoms. </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>The are different types of nanotechnology, including nanoparticles, nanocrystals, and nanotubes. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  3. 3. What is Nanotechnology? Continued <ul><li>Nanotechnology will be able to help humans in many ways, including: </li></ul><ul><li>Protecting our armed forces and soldiers. </li></ul>
  4. 4. How can Nanotechnology be used in the Military? <ul><li>Nanotechnology will be a source to increase survival in our soldiers by using new materials made using nanotechnology. </li></ul>Example of a Helmet made From composite Materials.
  5. 5. Institute for Soldier Nanotechnologies <ul><li>This is an institute with a goal to increasing the protection and survival rate of U.S. soldiers. </li></ul><ul><li>Launched with the United States Army Research center along with founding members, including Dupont ® and Raytheon ® </li></ul>
  6. 6. How will Nanotechnology Help? <ul><li>Artificial Intelligence </li></ul><ul><li>Stronger Vehicles </li></ul><ul><li>Better, lighter materials </li></ul>
  7. 7. Artificial Intelligence, and Nanotechnology <ul><li>Nanotechnology will be used in developing new machines to enhance the future’s artificial Intelligence. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Artificial intelligence is the brains of a robot, telling it what to do. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>An example of this is our RCX, but the robot in the photo to the right would have a memory much more complex. </li></ul>This is what Nanotechnology May look like in the future. Honda’s ASIMO Humanoid Robot
  8. 8. Super Uniforms <ul><li>With nanotechnology, we could have a uniform that could block out biological weapons, and even heal their wearers. </li></ul><ul><li>Using micro fibers and carbons put together with nanotechnology, we could help save the lives of thousands of soldiers. </li></ul>Official Army photos of future Army uniforms, with a Comparison of today's, and The future’s uniforms
  9. 9. Super Humvees <ul><li>A Humvee is currently the army’s primary vehicle, replacing the Jeep in 1979. </li></ul><ul><li>Recently, tires have been going flat in Iraq, and the army needs a solution. </li></ul><ul><li>Special materials in tires can help make them puncture resistant, enabling the Humvees to go faster and farther. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Improvements!!! <ul><li>The army has been supported by aircraft companies, including Boeing ® and Lockheed Martin ® , to develop stronger, yet lighter materials for military jets. </li></ul><ul><li>These days, a soldier can carry 130 lbs on a march (source www.forbes.com). Using nanotechnology, almost all of those materials can be lightened, making it easier to walk, maneuver, and most importantly, protect our soldiers. </li></ul><ul><li>We want to design a backpack that is lighter and more efficient than the ones currently used. </li></ul><ul><li>All of this is thanks to nanotechnology! </li></ul>
