Critical Defence Materials provide enhanced protection, increased functionality, and achieve top performance in their class.
Defensive materials focus on preserving life or enhancing performance in complex or threatening environments.
Popular examples include carbon fiber and Kevlar.
The Kevlar market was valued at $449.2 million in 2021Source
Materials development fails too often, takes too long, and costs too much.
Result: Market Bottleneck
Manufacturers focus on getting one new material to market.
Result: Chronic underinvestment in technologies to improve materials development processes
New technologies and a new business model are needed to lead defence materials discovery and capture the smart materials market.
OUR GOAL: BREAKING BOTTLENECKS IN A $58B+ DEFENCE MATERIALS MARKET
Accelerating defence materials commercialization is a massive opportunity.
Defence materials development to meet surging demand is a critical high-value opportunity. But commercialization has been challenging to operationalize.
Solution: AI Powered Materials Development
Industrial Applications for Defence Materials
The sports protective equipment was market valued at 7.51 Billion in 2022Source
Patronus along with its parent company, Syniad Innovations, is using machine-learning for material development acceleration, designed to identify, optimize and rapidly accelerate production of novel materials.
Artificial intelligence can digitally target specific material attributes such as weight reduction, wear resistance, corrosion resistance and high-temperature capability.
To date, most advancements in materials have been achieved through trial and error. With an AI-based approach, we aim to dramatically reduce R&D time and cost.
We are hitting an inflection point with international defence primes with significant offset obligations.
R&D partner supplying core intellectual property and market insights.
Invited Patronus into a UK MoD consortium focused on defence applications.
