Summary
Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) are small devices on the scale of a few millimeters or less. This monograph reports the results of discussions with U.S. researchers about potential military applications. To indicate the range of possibilities, the authors describe five applications: chemical sensors for soldiers, devices to identify other soldiers as friends or foes, active surfaces, distributed sensor nets, and microrobotic electronic disabling systems. Since planned U.S. investments in MEMS lags behind investments in this technology by Japan, Germany and the Netherlands, the authors recommend that the U.S. develop and pursue reasonable target applications for demonstration in three to five years. This would allow assessment of the military potential of the technology and enable the U.S. to capitalize on breakthroughs elsewhere and to develop countermeasures as necessary
