Military Nanotechnology: Potential Applications and Preventive Arms Control (Contemporary Security Studies) - Kindle edition by Altmann, by: Book Description. With revolutionary changes in nanotechnology (NT) now on the horizon, many countries have started major research and development (R&D) programmes, which are mainly civilian. Often overlooked are military R&D programmes – in particular those of the US government. MILITARY NANOTECHNOLOGY This book is the first systematic and comprehensive presentation of the potential military applications of nanotechnology (NT). Introduction This book examines the application of nanoscience and nanotechnology in military defence strategies. Both historical and current perspectives on military technologies are discussed. The book provides comprehensive details on current trends in the application of nanotechnology to ground, air, and naval specializations.
Jürgen Altmann has written a book “Military Nanotechnology: Potential Applications and Preventive Arms Control” which has an abstract at this link. From the abstract: Military R&D of NT is beginning to expand, with the USA far in the lead. This chapter, which is a useful reference for researchers and technical staff engaged in the research and development of nanotechnology for military and aerospace applications, can be used as a viable reference by engineering students and professors who have a genuine interest in nanotechnology and its applications in the miniaturization of military and aerospace products. This nanotechnology book provides an overview of current develop- ments, expectations for time-to-market and several future concepts for military applications. Nanotechnology Makes Morphing Military Transport Possible By Earl Boysen, Nancy C. Muir, Desiree Dudley, Christine Peterson The idea of equipment that can change its shape isn’t science fiction.
Military Websites These are websites which are a good place to start in looking for more information on nanotechnology in the military. Then use the general website page linked at the bottom of this page. It is full of nanotechnology sites related to multiple areas including yours. After exhausting these resources you may also wish to use your. An Army document (pdf download KB) states that “A key component of the leadership role in nanotechnology is protecting the work force, civilian and military, from the unintended consequences of nanotechnology processes and materials. The Army should take an active role in drafting environmental, safety, and occupational health guidelines for nanomaterials to ensure . In their pop-science book Nanotechnology and Homeland Security: New Weapons for New Wars (), nanoscientist Mark Ratner and nanobusiness entrepreneur Daniel Ratner tell us, "The tasks of modern soldiers might well be called superhuman and thus require superhuman characteristics to accomplish them" (Ratner and Ratner 55). Nanotechnology in military applications-Anti-corrosion. Nanomaterials are also allowing for significant cost savings. Conventional paints are labour intensive to apply and potentially hazardous to the people working with them. These coatings have to be touched up by hand, which can hide metal damage. As a result, the total cost for the US.
