ADELPHI, Md. – A joint research project between the U.S. Army and Texas A&M University led to a development that could accelerate the discovery of unique materials for bioelectronics and other applications.

Army researchers plan to use new tools to find target materials to enhance technologies in radio frequency (RF) electronics, next-generation combat vehicles, soldier lethality, and more.

Researchers at the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command, known as DEVCOM, Army Research Laboratory, said an invention called a centrifugal microfluidic platform will help advance the goals of one of the laboratory’s essential research programs.

The laboratory, which is focused on getting what comes from scientific advances into the hands of soldiers, has a program known as the Transformational Synthetic Biology for Military Environments, or TRANSFORME, Essential Research Program.
