Nautilus Defense to develop smart textiles for wearable electronics with embedded data and power networks

U.S. Navy researchers needed cloth with internally woven electrical data and power networks to create new generations of smart textiles for wearable electronics and computing. They found their solution from Nautilus Defense LLC in Pawtucket, R.I., and Leidos Inc. in San Diego.

SMART ePANTS seeks to develop active smart textile garments combining the singular micro yarn textile routing system and similar smart fabric technologies with low-power electronics. The project will develop prototype wearable and washable garments that incorporate active smart textiles components. Read more at Military+Aerospace Electronics
