"While nanotechnology implies processing materials or making devices at the molecular level, this area of science is truly in its infancy," said Dr. Les Kramer, director and chief technologist at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control. "There is tremendous potential in nanotechnology and related disciplines to have a very positive impact on our future. For example, weapons will become smaller, lighter, and smarter. Electronics will shrink in size, but have greater capabilities and memory. Sensors will see farther, with greater resolution."

The small businesses will have the opportunity to share their development and production experience with Lockheed Martin designers and manufacturing engineers with the intent to encourage collaboration and foster partnerships where innovations and technologies align with each others products and solutions. Many of the small businesses are working on research and development programs with funding from Department of Defense Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grants, enabling them to develop next-generation nanotechnologies.
