apparel
.

This

is

because

any

advantage

in

a

combat

field

can

never

be

underestimated
.

In

this

regard,

smart

textiles

have

the

ability

to

provide

superior

functionality
.

This

benefit

has

driven

increased

government

funding

for

smart

textiles

in

the

recent

years
.




The

next

most

significant

area

of

research

focus

is

Healthcare
.

This

is

driven

by

high

costs

of

specialist

healthcare

personnel
.




Sportswear

is

also

a

key

area

of

research

focus

as

the

textiles

used

in

sports

applications

provide

some

superior

characteristics

when

compared

to

normal

Technology Overview


Renewable

chemicals

refers

to

the

development

of

environmentally

friendly,

sustainable

chemicals

that

can

be

used

to

replace

traditional

petrochemicals
.


The

main

feedstock

for

renewable

chemicals

are

usually

obtained

from

sugar,

starch

and

vegetable

oil

feedstock
.

Biomass

can

also

be

used

as

a

feedstock,

but

requires

pretreatment

processing

to

convert

it

to

simple

sugars
.


The

simplest

method

to

produce

renewable

chemicals

is

by

using

fermentation
.

Why is it important?



Renewable

chemicals

are

considered

a

more

environment
-
friendly

alternative

to

chemicals

derived

from

fossil

fuels
.

Increased

adoption

of

renewable

chemicals

will

lead

to

less

carbon

emissions,

as

well

as

reduced

environmental

impact
.


The

production

of

renewable

chemicals

is

also

driven

by

the

volatility

of

oil

prices,

as

bulk

chemical

producers

are

attempting

to

widen

their

product

portfolio

so

as

to

lessen

their

risk

towards

volatile

oil

prices
.


Year of Impact


Renewable

chemicals

have

been

available

for

several

years,

with

the

first

sector

to

be

impacted

being

the

plastics

industry,

with

the

introduction

of

bioplastics

made

from

polylactic

acid

(PLA)

and

polyhydroxyalkanoates

(PHA)
.


Other

renewable

chemicals

expected

to

be

commercialized

soon

are

succinic

acid,

butanol,

acrylic

acid,

butanediols
,

propanediols,

lactic

acid,

glycerine
,

adipic

acid,

ethanol,

glucaric

acid,

propylene

glycol,

acetyls,

and

furanics
.

Technology Overview


Digital

Manufacturing

technology

refers

to

the

use

of

simulation

tools

and

product

lifecycle

management

software,

and

ICT

solutions

to

achieve

higher

productivity

in

manufacturing,

thereby

increasing

competitiveness
.



The

removal

of

global

trade

barriers,

and

the

creation

of

globally

distributed

manufacturing

necessitates

the

transition

to

a

digital

manufacturing

enterprise
.


Also,

called

e
-
manufacturing

technologies

in

this

domain

facilitate

the

link

between

the

‘top

floor’

and

‘shop

floor’

wherein

information

from

plant

automation

and

control

systems

can

be

fed

to

higher

level

information

layers

of

the

enterprise

for

decision

making

and

strategy

management
.

Why is it important?








There

is

a

dire

need

to

achieve

a

competitive

edge

with

low

cost

overseas

manufacturing

locations,

and

this

applies

to

small

and

medium

scale

enterprises

(SMEs)

as

well
.

This

can

be

achieved

by

utilizing

digital

manufacturing

to

achieve

cost

economics,

reducing

time

to

market

of

products,

improving

responsiveness

to

customers,

and

acquiring

the

ability

for

mass

customization
.




Companies

can

keep

pace

with

competition

for

developing

futuristic

products

if

product

lifecycle

management

(PLM)

solutions

are

adopted,

and

simulation

tools

are

effectively

used

for

product

development

and

process

optimization
.





Impact


Usage

of

digital

manufacturing

for

collaborative

new

product

design,

agile

manufacturing,

and

supply

chain

integration

can

be

seen

in

competitive

markets
.

However,

there

is

tremendous

untapped

potential

across

several

manufacturing

streams,

which

include

small

Semantic Web: Technology Snapshot

Technology Overview


Long

Term

Evolution

(LTE)

is

a

fourth

generation

(
4
G)

cellular

network

technology

that

promises

to

offer

enhanced

data

rates

and

capacity

for

mobile

broadband

connectivity



The

technology

has

garnered

the

attention

of

several

large

carrier

network

operators
-

many

operators

have

abandoned

WiMAX
,

a

competing

4
G

technology,

in

favour

of

LTE
.



Why is it important?









Cellular

network

operators

across

the

globe

have

been

struggling

to

support

the

surging

data

traffic

on

their

networks
.

With

the

advent

and

widespread

adoption

of

powerful

smartphones,

mobile

data

traffic

has

risen

drastically



LTE,

owing

to

its

ability

to

facilitate

improved

data

rates

and

capacity,

is

cited

as

a

solution

for

cellular

network

capacity

crunch






Year of Impact



The

time

division

duplex

(TDD)

version

of

LTE

is

expected

to

be

widely

deployed

as

the

availability

of

unpaired

spectrum

can

be

leveraged

for

LTE

TDD

deployments
.

Major

deployments

are

expected

in

India

in

2011
,

followed

by

China

and

Japan

in

2012

Long Term Evolution:Technology Snapshot

Technology
Overview


Following

the

complete

sequencing

of

the

human

genome

and

the

availability

of

the

annotated

human

genome

sequence

online,

DNA

analysis

has

become

a

routine

procedure
.



Emergence

of

novel

technologies

for

global

genomic

analysis

(high

throughput

sequencing,

transcript

profiling,

SNP

genotyping),

haplotype

mapping,

and

bioinformatics

has

revolutionized

the

information

available

about

the

human

genome
.

Why is it
important?


Genomics

provides

structural

and

organizational

information

and

aims

to

improve

the

ability

to

predict

the

manner

in

which

genetic

variation

affects

susceptibility

to

disease,

response

to

medical

treatments,

and

how

other

important

phenotypes,

will

have

a

transformative

effect

on

health

care
.


Reductions

in

sequencing

costs

and

improvements

in

the

speed

at

which

sequences

can

be

generated

are

ushering

the

era

for

personal

genomics
.

Year of Impact


Automated procedures are commercialized to prepare DNA for sequencing and analysis
broadly for health assessment, therapeutic decisions, and predicting phenotypes of interest.


Entire human genome can now be sequenced for a retail cost of $20,000 and NHGRI part
of the U.S. National Institute of Health has set a target to be able to sequence a human
-
sized genome for US $1,000 by 2014
