Modern protective clothing needs to meet a variety of multifunctional requirements and offer a very high level of protection as well as remarkable comfort and wearability, influencing the wearerís physical performance which puts it far beyond usual definitions of comfort. The demand for multifunctional properties makes it necessary to develop and improve fibre and textile materials and structures (suits, uniforms, Ö). Introduction of nanotechnology and the use of a variety of (wearable) sensors / embedded electronics and processors turn traditional protection into a value added market posing ever increasing challenges to researchers and engineers at universities, institutes and industry. Design and manufacturing of sophisticated interactive protective textiles and clothing, meeting very tight specifications, has to be done taking into account cost-effectiveness, environmental issues and even the need to be applied to military as well as civil purposes.
