Ann Arbor Area Community News
The Ann Arbor News reported in early August that Ann Arbor based Nanocerox, Inc. was waiting to hear from the Department of Defense on a boost in their research funding for new transparent armor materials.
It turns out they did get the contract, worth about $3.1 million. Peter Gray, president of Nanocerox, said this:
I think the impact on our company and Ann Arbor will be wonderful. In the past 12 months, the science team here has grown from 3 to 11. In today’s world, I think that’s the most important thing – creating good jobs right here in Michigan. It’s a good feeling to see trained chemists and materials scientists having the opportunity to work in their own fields.
I can’t find a news story about it anywhere—I heard it on WUOM. If anyone wants to look over the contract to see if there’s anything else interesting in there, let us know.
