NASA awards a potential $8.1 million dollar contract to Nanocomp Technologies, now part of Huntsman,  for the "continued improvement of manufacturing high-strength CNT yarn/tape for use in developing CNT composites with strength properties at least double that of carbon fiber composites in use today. The contract also provides for studying commercialization objectives for CNT material as well as expanding manufacturing capabilities to lower production costs of high strength CNT yarn. "
