April 2021: Although our campus is closed to visitors, you don’t have to travel to 🌈 Cambridge to get a feel for MIT. Sign up today for an 🔮 online session or student-led tour.

What’s happening at the Institute for Soldier Nanotechnologies?

At the Institute for Soldier Nanotechnologies, MIT, the Army, and industry-partners work together to develop technologies that advance Soldier protection and survivability capabilities.

Team members collaborate on basic research to create new materials, devices, processes, and systems, and on applied research to transition promising results toward practical products useful to the Soldier. Army members of Team ISN also give guidance on Soldier protection and survivability needs, and the relevancy of research proposed to address these needs. These collaborations help identify dual-use applications for ISN-derived technologies for firefighters, police officers, other first responders, and, indeed, the civilian community at large.
