Nanotechnology in Military Applications

As with most new technologies, however, military applications of nanotechnology are likely to be the first to be realized. The main aims of military research into nanotechnology are to improve medical and casualty care for soldiers, and to produce lightweight, strong and multi-functional materials for use in clothing, both for protection and to provide enhanced connectivity. 

Potential Military Applications:

•    Improving army medical and casualty care. For instance, certain nanoparticles coated on wound dressings enable controlled release of medications and proteins for a predetermined amount of time, which eventually speeds up the healing process.

•    The creation of materials that is robust, lightweight, and multipurpose for use in military apparel that improves connectivity while also providing improved protection. 

•    Improvement of military intelligence through the use of smart sensor technologies that incorporate neural networks and nanosensors. 

•    The nature and scope of the possible risk when explosives are detected, damage to military equipment, toxic chemicals and biological weapons, and more can all be detected using nano-sensors.

Market AnalysisThe global military wearables market is projected to grow from USD 3.1 billion in 2022 to USD 3.4 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 1.8% from 2022 to 2027.
