LunaMicro receives an order from the Swedish Defense Materiel Administration (FMV)

LunaMicro AB, a deep tech start-up specializing in smart textiles, has received an order from the Swedish Defense Materiel Administration to explore the use of our technology in the area of crisis management and defense medicine.

LunaMicro's patented product is a soft flexible fabric that pumps liquid water from one side of the fabric to the other when connected to a small battery. The goal of the collaboration is to investigate the possibility of implementing LunaMicro's technology in three very different medical applications selected by the Swedish Defense Materiel Administration.

It is extremely gratifying and courageous of the Swedish Defense Materiel Administration to hire a startup to evaluate new technology at an early stage. We know that we have a revolutionary solution and this will be a sharp test of how it can be applied in a critically important area like crisis management and defense medicine, says Nate Robinson, CEO and founder of LunaMicro.

The project is part of FMV’s “Military innovation program”, which was focused on Defense medicine this year, and will be delivered in 2022 and early 2023.
