The Future of Anti-Terrorism Technologies

Abstract:
James Jay Carafano: For most of the 20th century, counterterrorism and technology coexisted in a one-sided relationship. In large part, law enforcement and the military adapted the technologies that were commercially available to their needs. That relationship may simply be inadequate for addressing the challenges of the 21st century.

Nanotechnology. As a counterterrorism tool, nanotechnologies are in their infancies. Nanotech­nology involves developing or working with mate­rials and complete systems at the atomic, molecular, or macromolecular levels where at least one dimension falls with the range of 1–100 nanometers. Working at such a small scale offers unique capabilities, such as being able to control how nanodevices interact with other systems at the atomic or molecular level.
