Nanotechnology: Changing the Face of National Security

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium

As we move further into the 21st century fighting an enemy in a new paradigm, technology has become more important in both defense and national security policy. Before spending billions of dollars on the "next best thing," it is important to have a strategy in place that smoothly integrates new technologies into a strong national security policy. Has the Department of Defense and Department of Homeland Security made significant investment into nanotechnology? What applications does nanotechnology have for the defense of the nation? How close are these technologies to performing? Join us as we delve into building a solid national security policy of the future.
