Title: The application of microrobotics in warfare

Abstract

This is the final report of a one-year, Laboratory-Directed Research and Development (LDRD) project at the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL). The project sought to conduct a detailed theoretical study of military microrobot requirements and performance in conflict situations. The study was directed toward construction of a proof-of-concept prototype with attention to its eventual mass manufacture using microlithographic fabrication techniques. The study included design and performance assessment of payloads for the microvehicle, which might include special sensors and data processing equipment for gathering intelligence, or electrical, mechanical, and chemical disrupters of various sorts.
