Commercializing Nanotechnology in the 21st century is a major challenge for Industry, Academia, and National laboratories in many countries. Billions of dollars have been invested by many advanced countries because of the expected Trillions of Dollars that such commercialization of Nanotechnology Products can bring, these products include Nanotechnology Batteries for Cell phones, laptops, tablets Etc. that can stay charged after one week of use. Other products can be used in Space, such as Satellites structures and other materials that can withstand the high temperatures for space shuttle engines. In this paper, we have focused on novel approaches for surmounting technical challenges needed to scale up processes from the laboratory to commercial environment. Mathematical models backed by experimental results will be used to explain processes in the High Temperature Ablative of Rocket Motors.
Dr. Thomas Mensah is President and CEO of Georgia Aerospace Systems in Atlanta Georgia USA. The Company is a leading supplier and manufacturer of Nanocomposite products for Commercial Aviation and Defense Platforms. He is the author of the International Textbook on Nanotechnology Commercialization published by Wiley and the American Institute of Chemical Engineers, AIChE. This book is used in many advanced countries especially industries that seek to produce advanced products like cellphone batteries that last more than a week without charging, advanced missile platforms with vibration damping capabilities, and high temperature ablative rocket motor shielding materials for space vehicles and others. He is also one of the four Scientist in the world that Commercialized Fiber Optics Technology at Corning Glass Works USA, in the Mid Eighties that supports the Modern Day high speed Broadband Internet. He is also the Founder of the New Silicon Valley of Ghana. He is a Fellow of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers, Associate Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Fellow of the National Academy of Inventors, USA, and Fellow of Ghana Institute of Engineers. He is the recipient of several Awards, including the Kwame Nkrumah Genius Award, Ted Turner Trumpet Award, AIChE 100, William Grimes Award. He has served on the Nanoscale Engineering Forum, NSEF and the Publication Committee of AIChE.
