(KBLB) (“Company”), the leading developer of spider silk based fibers, today announced that the U.S. Army awarded the optional phase of its contract with the Company valued at more than $900,000.

The potential uses of spider silk are nearly limitless, but one of the greatest honors is being able to apply our technology to serving those who dedicate themselves to serving and protecting all of us.”
