General Dynamics Information Technology has awarded Luna Innovations a US$3.9m contract to improve the performance of nanomaterials for military applications.

The contract is a subcontract of a previous agreement between General Dynamics and the US Air Force Research Laboratory.

Luna’s product development team will evaluate prototypes using exclusive nanomaterials applied to real-world conditions.

Demonstrations of the commercial viability of proposed nanotechnologies will include diagnostics and therapeutics for military medicine and alternative energy solutions using organic solar cells.

Increasing efficiencies of light conversion to electrical energy of organic solar cells is required to make them commercially viable.

The company has made advances on a key parameter, known as open circuit voltage, or Voc, that is essential for improving organic solar cell efficiency.
