New technologies have always influenced societies. They have not only entailed advantages. Revolutionary technologies have been misused and, in this way, impacted means and methods used in armed conflict, thus changing strategies as well as tactics. Especially in the fields of nano- and biotechnology as well as robotics experts are expecting new upcoming technological developments that might influence threat scenarios.

Societies spearheading these developments will also play a leading part in global security policy. Competition has already started on a global level and will heat up in the future.

This book outlines future challenges regarding the technological complexity of the individual research areas of nano- and biotechnology and robotics.
