Drexel Joins High-Tech Fabric Research Collaboration

The U.S. Department of Defense has tapped Drexel University as a key leader in the creation of a $75 million national research institute that will support American textile manufacturers in bringing sophisticated new materials and textiles to the marketplace. The institute, called Advanced Functional Fabrics of America, will be a national manufacturing resource center for industry and government to draw on academic expertise in new fibers and textiles. The result will be fabrics engineered to see, hear, sense and communicate; serving an array of industries including aerospace, apparel, architecture and health.   – See more at: http://drexel.edu/now/archive/2016/April/Drexel-AFFOA/#sthash.51c2KzZg.dpuf
