In Pictures: Second Skin to Detect Chem-Bio Threats

What if a warfighter’s uniform could automatically detect chemical and biological threats? With Second Skin, and effort spearheaded by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), it’s possible.

The dynamic, multi-functional material is fully integrated at the molecular level and can detect and protect warfighters from deadly chemical and biological threats, and adapting to the environment.
