June 25, 2003 — US Global Aerospace Inc. has launched a line of nano-based filters for protection against biological and chemical contaminants, according to a news release.
The nanofilters, for environmental control systems in aircraft and heating and cooling systems in hospitals and other buildings, are designed to capture viruses like those responsible for Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome and airborne pathogens like anthrax. The products, developed by another firm for NASA space flight applications, are designed to capture submicron-size particulates and do so with lower energy consumption and service costs, the release said.
The Carson City, Nev.-based company also announced it will change its name to US Global Nanospace Inc. US Global, listed on OTC Bulletin Board, was trading Wednesday afternoon at 16 cents, up from 10 on Tuesday.
