APPENDIX D 37 Appendix D Statement of Task 1. Describe the technology challenges and opportunities for nanotechnology to enable new functions and systems for use by the intelligence community. Consider the implications of miniaturization, science at the nanoscale, and atomistic and molecular assembly in two separate workshops for the following: a. Power technologies b. Sensing and positioning technologies 2. Evaluate the potential for advances in these technologies to address needs as presented to the committee by the intelligence community. 3. For each technology, describe a path and associated risks to achieve near-term (immediate), mid- term (3â5 years), and long-term (10 years) goals. Consider the infrastructure, including equipment, human resources, and knowledge base, needed to carry out these activities. 4. In addition, discuss potential new and disruptive ways that nanotechnology can address these intelligence community needs. 5. Assess opportunities to counter these predicted technology capabilities.
