NANO for the Military

Abstract:
Another ‘dark corner' is nanotechnology for military applications. This is by far and away the most controversial area of nanotechnology research and development - for two reasons. Firstly, the military budget for nanoscale research is probably greater by a factor of two than for any other area; and secondly, although there is some information available, we do not know exactly where the money is being spent, the research themes are not subject to public scrutiny and there is no accountability. Although ethical and moral questions may be asked and issues raised - they may not necessarily be answered or addressed.
