Nanotechnology paves way for new weapons

Abstract:
Andrew Oppenheimer: Nanotechnology has great potential in the fields of biotechnology and medicine. While bio-nanotechnological products are seen as around 10 years off, medical application is promising, with intense research being conducted in disease diagnosis, drug delivery and molecular imaging.

As with many technologies, the medical applications may be adapted for offensive purposes. Manipulation of biological and chemical agents using nanotechnologies could result in entirely new threats that might be harder to detect and counter than existing CBW.
