Chinese nanotechnology fueling advanced bio, cyber weapons, electronic warfare tools

The Chinese military is building sophisticated biological weapons and small-scale electronic tools made with nanotechnology that could be used in covert warfare.

  • The report warns that Chinese advancements in biotechnology raise new fears about dual-use, civilian-military applications to produce genetically engineered pathogens for biological warfare, including difficult-to-trace bioweapons.
  • Other nanotechnology weapons in development include miniature electronics and sensors in nanodevices for conducting data theft and disrupting critical infrastructure without detection.
