MBDA and MILTECH have joined forces to create novel infrared stealth materials for military applications, in collaboration with the University of Patras.

This contract falls under the co-operation programme associated with the FDI HN (Defence and Intervention Frigates for the Hellenic Navy), and supports European efforts towards independence in the defence industrial base.

Eric Béranger, CEO of MBDA, and Dimtrios Dimitriou, Naval and EU Projects Manager of MILTECH, today 18 October, at EURONAVAL 2022, signed the contract in the presence of M. Nikos Chardalias, Greek Deputy Minister of National Defence, and Admiral Aristeidis Alexopoulos, Director General of GDDIA (General Directorate For Defense Investments And Armaments).

The R&D project’s objective is to explore novel photonic nanocomposite materials, advanced IR nanophotonic metamaterial structures and their utilization. The project will rely on the technical competencies mastered by MILTECH in the field of stealth IR and the expertise of the University of Patras in micro/nanophase, molecular, hybrid and bio-phase materials and related technologies.
