Leading Military Nano-Thermite Developer: No Records Describing Its Nano-Thermite Uses

Within a March 16, 2012 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) reply, the Indian Head division (IHD) of the Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) advised that it possesses no records describing uses of its nano-thermite products, despite IHDNSWC being described as the leading developer of nano-thermite circa 2008[1] and being "the only reliable source of aluminum nanopowders in the United States” circa September 11, 2001.[2] In 2009, the discovery of nano-sized thermitic material within World Trade Center dust samples was reported.[3]

Mr. Monaghan,

Thank you. I am still trying to locate records responsive to your request. So far, although some basic nano-thermite research was done here, it does not appear that products were derived from that research.
