ATMC to develop camouflage textile for army
Nov '10
The Advanced Technology and Manufacturing Centre (ATMC) inked a deal with an Army Research and Development Centre at Natick, where the Fall River centre can manufacture textiles, which possibly may be used in Army camouflage.

The deal was made public after a roundtable conference which was attended by 30 persons representing textile and allied companies, the state and the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, which manages the ATMC.

The ATMC and the Natick Soldier Research, Development & Engineering Centre would work together on this project for developing the camouflage textile for American soldiers.

As revealed by the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, scientists of both the institutions would set up printing press with high-speed working calibre and technology, which would enable them to develop unique camouflage material, which the infrared sensors even could not trace.

The collaboration in the long run could give rise to several jobs in textile sector in the Fall River area. If this three-year long association turns successful, it could channelize financial assistance for ATMC for undertaking such other projects in future.
