UK Defense ministry reviews nanotechnology

from the World-Watch dept.
RobertBradbury writes "The British Minstry of Defence (MOD) has released this recent report NANOTECHNOLOGY: Its Impact on Defence and the MOD (in Adobe Acrobat PDF format).

It's interesting for what they get wrong. They seem to be including quantum cryptography, AI, MEMS and biotechnology as part of "nanotechnology" while entirely missing the possibility of nanobots. Guess that's what happens when you don't include a microbiologist on the "expert" panel. It mentions that European funding is ~100 million pounds a year, but like the U.S. funding, that probably includes a lot of nanoscience and larger-than-nanoscale research."
