“U.S. Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter has announced the Advanced Functional Fabrics of America plan today at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Carter said the efforts are expected to add more than 50,000 jobs in a wide range of U.S. industries by 2025, while advancing textile products that can see, hear, sense, communicate, monitor health, change color, and store and convert energy, the statement said. The independent nonprofit’s plan is intended to provide key services to industry, ranging from building prototypes to helping educate the employees who will work in textile plants of the future, the statement said.”
