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.
