NANOTECHNOLOGY R&D AT THE DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE (DOD)
Clifford Lau, Ph.D., Senior Science Advisor, Office of Basic Research,
OFFICE OF DEPUTY UNDER SECRETARY OF DEFENSE, LABORATORIES AND BASIC SCIENCE
The Department of Defense (DoD) supports research and development of interest to the department in nanoscience and nanotechnology in order to meet its
national security mission needs. Nanotechnology is an enabling technology that would impact all of DoD's six strategic research areas which include

focused on scientific and technical merits and on relevance to DoD. The objective is to achieve dramatic enhancements in the properties and performance of
materials, devices, and structures with controllable features on the nanometer scale, leading to DoD applications in high density information storage, high
performance information technology, low power communication devices, miniaturized multi-modality sensors, warfighter physiological status monitors, real-time
biochem sensors with high sensitivity and selectivity, high performance and affordable nanocomposite materials and structures, and miniaturized robotics and
uninhabited aerial and underwater platforms. DoD's nanotechnology research programs are carried out mostly in the universities, UARCs, FFRDCs, and DoD
laboratories including NRL, ARL, and AFRL. In FY2004, DoD plans to invest $297M in nanotechnology, with a significant contribution from DARPA at $185M. DoD's
nanotechnology R&D programs are coordinated through a nanoscience planning group as part of the Reliance process and through Service's nanotechnology
working groups, with Office of Secretary of Defense providing oversight. Many of DoD's nanotechnology R&D results have been transitioned to DoD applications,
including nanocoatings, stealthy nanomaterials, polymer nanocomposites, and biochem agent detectors. Nanotechnology remains to be one of the top priority
research areas within DoD.

   – Funds early stage R&D projects at small technology companies
   – Projects which serve the DoD need and have the potential for
     commercialization in private sector and/or military markets

• STTR: Science Technology Transfer
   – http://www.acq.osd.mil/sadbu/sbir/
   – Similar to SBIR but funds cooperative R&D projects involving a small
     business and a research institution to create the effective vehicle for
     moving research ideas to the market where they can benefit both the
     private sector and the military.

  programs      http://www.aro.army.mil/research/index.htm
   – Opportunities for college and university faculty members to perform
     research at Defense facilities during the summer. Faculty members are
     competitively selected for placement at laboratories and centers that
     share their research interests to collaborate on existing technical
     projects or start new, short term projects.

• Young Investigators Program
   – http://www.onr.navy.mil/sci_tech/industrial/363/yip.asp
   – The objectives of the Young Investigator Program (YIP) are to attract
     outstanding new faculty members at institutions of higher education, to
     support their research, and to encourage their teaching and research
     careers. Awards of up to $100,000 per year for three years to academic
     researchers who have received Ph.D. or equivalent degrees on or after 1
     November 1998.

• Cost Sharing Possibilities
  – Evidence of commitment from the states
  – Could differ between Centers and Principal
    Investigators
• Established researchers directed to
  DEPSCoR rather than to Core
