Altmann explores the current state of military nanotechnology research and development in the United states, and describes the potential for military applications of nanotechnology in the future. These potential applications are accessed from an international security perspective. Altmann challenges government who are funding the development of these new technologies to weigh potential benefits against the dangers of proliferation, and suggests ways to outlaw the development of harmful and destabilizing military nanotechnologies, without hurting the development of nanotechnologies for civilian purposes.
