Military dominates UK science, says report

Abstract:
And military thinking could also dominate the direction of nanotechnology - the science of materials on scales of a billionth of a metre - pushing research in the direction of new "smart" uniforms and battlefield equipment. Fifteen years from now, this might result in a new generation of nuclear weapons, new kinds of miniature robot fighting systems, body implants and miniature anti-satellite weapons. The same research applied to chemical or biological warfare could end in "entirely new threats".
