Overview

Two important documents from the U.S. Defense Department provide a good overview of current military nanotechnology: Nanotechnology for Future Force Armaments, and Defense Nanotechnology Research and Development Program. Nanotechnology research remains a major national initiative, and DoD remains at the forefront as a major contributor—as it had been even before the inception of the formal NNI. Although great scientific and technological progress has been made, many questions about the behavior of matter at the nanoscale level remain, and considerable scientific knowledge has yet to be learned. Nanotechnology must still be considered to be in its technological and engineering infancy. Some significant applications have been noted, but these applications are viewed as just the beginning of an age of practical products based on nanomaterials and nanoprocesses. The engagement of DoD in nanotechnology research will continue to be important in ensuring the optimum direction of ongoing research efforts and the optimum leveraging of this knowledge to advance warfighter and defense-related systems capabilities.

The current DoD nanotechnology programs represent a well-balanced and dynamic investment portfolio that addresses both near-term national security needs and long-term challenges. The DoD continues to view nanotechnology as one of the enabling technologies that should receive the highest level of corporate attention and coordination as described in the 2007 Department of Defense Research and Engineering Strategy. DoD 2010 plans include continuing, approximately stable support for the NNI Program Component Areas (PCAs) associated with the DoD mission. The primary PCAs will remain Fundamental Nanoscale Phenomena and Processes, Nanoscale Devices and Systems, and Nanomaterials. New projects in nanotechnology, as in all thematic areas, are awarded on a competitive basis, so the actual balance of investment may vary somewhat from current expectations.
