A Brief Review on the Potential of Nanotech in the Defense Sector

Mahidhara Utsav
Abstract—Nanotechnologyrelies on the concept of creating applications based on components built at nanoscale. The field draws on knowledge and expertise from various science disciplines, integrating aspects of physics, chemistry, biology, material sciences, with several fields of engineering. Ever since its beginnings roughly two decades ago, it has evolved into a massive area of interest, attracting attention due to the various possibilities afforded by the size of the nanodevices and their unique properties. Nanoparticles, by virtue of their adaptability have found various applications in fields ranging from biology to defense. This paper deals with the properties of CNTs, nanodevices and nanobots , their applications and the ethical issues concerning their influence in the defense sectors.

Index Terms—Battlefield efficiency, defense sector, nanoparticles, nanosensors.
