DoD Programs

Because of the large potential for payoffs in enhancing warfighting capabilities, nanotechnology continues to be one of the top priority research programs within the Department of Defense. In the Office of the Secretary of Defense, the DURINT (Defense University Research Initiative on Nanotechnology) will continue to be funded out of the University Research Initiative (URI) program. All three services and DARPA have substantial investments in nanotechnology 6.1 basic research. New 6.2 applied research programs are being planned to transition the research results to develop the nanotechnology for DOD.
