The opportunity afforded by nanoscience and technology offers a broadening of scope in electronics technologies and creates the foundation for the Nanoelectronics Era. Superior electronics is a major “forcemultiplier” for military systems. It is anticipated that nanoelectronics will augment the power of this multiplier. This paper explores the scientific and technological trends that will produce nanoelectronics and gives a few examples of the military applications of this emerging technology.
