Integration of new nano-engineered safe energetic layers with Sensors and Electronics to manufacture Safety-Critical Microsystems

Project description

New materials improve safety of pyrodevices

The rapid development of nanotechnology over the last few decades has made it possible to produce new energetic and reactive nanomaterials. These materials are widely studied for applications in pyrotechnics. The EU-funded PyroSafe project aims to create a new generation of safe and versatile energetic materials with tailored architectures at the nanoscale to replace the old unsafe energetic substances used in pyrodevices. Integrated safety-critical microsystems will detect catastrophes and trigger quick safety responses. Overall, the breakthrough PyroSafe technology introduces a new way of thinking and manufacturing energetic materials as safe programmable and protectable components. Furthermore, the technology will greatly affect society as it introduces real-time response to accidents in contrast to the current approach based on prevention.
