  • Original Article: AZONANO Applied Nanotech, Inc. (ANI), a PEN Inc. company(PEN), announces successful completion and test of fiberglass ballistic and blast-resistant armor panels that incorporate printed electronic antennas capable of sending and receiving radio communications and jamming enemy communication signals. The armor provides multi-channel communications and advanced active protection for vehicles, ships and buildings. The multi-function armor eliminates the need for multiple high-profile communications antenna structures on military vehicles and ships, making them less visible and identifiable in hostile situations. The armor-incased antennas also have jamming capability to block radio signals, such as those used to remotely trigger explosives, including […]
