    NUMBER10: Electromagnetic Railgun
    [​IMG]
    Developer: U.S. Navy

    What it is: It may not look like much now, but it is actually the first working step in the U.S. Navy’s quest to develop a weapon that can expel a projectile at nearly Mach 8 -- eight times the speed of sound. It doesn't use explosive energy, instead it creates an electromagnetic field that currently creates an eight-megajoule force, and by 2017 the operational power will be an awe-inspiring 5,000 mph. You could cover the range of an entire battlefield with one offshore weapon. These weapons don’t even need warheads in some cases.

    What it does: Electrical magnetic energy is generated by the high voltage in a giant bank of flux capacitors that send electrical energy across upper and lower rails of pre-stressed steel bolts, creating a charge that has enough kinetic energy power to reach unbelievable speeds.

    Why war needs it: The Navy’s new Electromagnetic rail gun could potentially end wars faster without delivering as lethal a payload as a nuclear bomb. It could also protect more soldiers on the ground without spreading resources too thin, since it can cover such a wide area of land.

    Active duty: The Navy will begin testing a working prototype that is four times faster than the current eight-megajoule model. The navy plans to equip their next generation of electrically powered ships with these rail guns by 2020.
    An Explosive Future
    In the wrong hands, these weapons could pick entire civilizations clean, but thankfully when used with striking precision and tactical strategy these weapons mean more of the good guys survive, while all that evil never stands a chance.

    A fifth-generation jet fighter is a fighter aircraft classification used in the United States encompassing the most advanced generation of fighter aircraft. Fifth-generation aircraft are the most advanced as of 2011, designed to incorporate numerous technological advancements over the class similarly dubbed fourth generation, including all-aspect stealth even when armed, Low Probability of Intercept Radar (LPIR), high-performance air frames, advanced avionics features, and highly integrated computer systems capable of networking with other elements within the theater of war in order to achieve an advantage in situational awareness. The only currently combat-ready fifth-generation fighter, the Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor, entered service with the U.S. Air Force in 2005.

    (II)INDIA: AURA[​IMG]

    (iii)CHINA :Anjian (some suggest it is dead project)
    CH3 [​IMG]

    (iv)EUROPE :EURON[​IMG]

    (v)BAE :Taranis[​IMG]

    The Northrop Grumman X-47B is a demonstration Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicle. The X-47 began as part of DARPA's J-UCAS program, and is now part of the United States Navy's UCAS-D (Unmanned Combat Air System Demonstration) program to create a carrier-based unmanned aircraft. Unlike the Boeing X-45, initial X-47A Pegasus development was company-funded. The original vehicle carries the designation X-47A Pegasus, while the follow-on naval version is designated X-47B.

    The USAF envisioned that J-UCAS will feature:
    Stores pylons on the wings for external fuel tanks or additional munitions.
    Mid-air refueling capability.
    A narrow field-of-view SAR-MTI system for targeting and post-strike damage assessment.
    The Navy is interested in many of the features on the Air Force wish list, though the Navy has put reconnaissance and jamming at the top of the list and strike at the bottom.

    NUMBER 7CBU-97 Sensor Fused Air Deployed Bomb
    [​IMG]
    Developer: U.S. Air Force

    What it is: The CBU-97 is the Air Force’s smartest 1,000-pound class freefall cluster bomb. It can search a radius of 1,500 feet and can literally clear a battlefield of tanks, vehicles and bunkers.

    What it does: The CBU-97 is like a space shuttle launch in reverse. The outside shell falls away to reveal the 10 BLU-108 submunition units. Each unit uses rocket power and a small parachute to right it vertically and help spin the four hockey-puck sized skeets out from their holding unit. The skeets deploy and search out enemy targets using their laser sensors to zero in and rain down explosive molten copper.

    Why war needs it: To have smart skeets that can pinpoint and follow enemy targets means that more innocent lives than ever before aren’t needlessly taken, thus reducing civilian casualties.

    Active duty: The CBU-97 Sensor Fused Bomb was first used during the March 2003, invasion of Iraq.

    NUMBER-6 :STEALTH NAVAL WARSHIPS

    (vi)UK-Type 45DESTROYER

    A stealth ship is a ship which employs stealth technology construction techniques in an effort to ensure that it is harder to detect by one or more of radar, visual, sonar, and infrared methods. These techniques borrow from stealth aircraft technology, although some aspects such as wake and acoustic signature reduction are unique to stealth ships' design.
    Reduction of radar cross section (RCS), visibility and noise is not unique to stealth ships; visual masking has been employed for over two centuries and RCS reduction traces back to American and Soviet ships of the Cold War. One common feature is the inward-sloping tumblehome hull design that significantly reduces the RCS.

    NUMBER 5: Metal Storm Stacked Projectile
    [​IMG]
    Developer: Metal Storm Technology (Australia)

    What it is: The genius of Metal Storm starts by combing the barrel with the magazine. There is no traditional firing mechanism, instead, when the trigger is pressed, electronic impulses are sent to the bullets igniting them all in rapid succession at a rate of 16,000 rounds a second from multiple barrels. Metal Storm can also be modified to launch grenades at a rate of a half-a-million rounds a minute. It is the fastest automatic weapon in the world.

    What it does: In addition to its two modes and innovative ignition system, Metal Storm can be left completely unattended as a silent assassin. Its motion detecting sensors relay situational awareness stats on the battlefield to the commanding generals, so if an enemy intruder crosses paths with the Metal Storm, they'll most likely be full of holes. Metal Storm’s electrical ignition system allows it to more closely bond with computer targeting systems and it can be fired at lethal or non-lethal speeds.

    Why war needs it: The ability to load different types of ammunition in the same weapon and to control the rate of speed that they’re fired gives the operative an infinite number of options in an infinite number of situations; from the tank-busting, armor-piercing rounds to a volley gun used in riot and crowd control situations.

    Active duty: Metal Storm is still undergoing testing and has yet to be certified for deployment. Metal Storm is also partnering with iRobot (makers of the Roomba vacuum) to create a weaponized robot.

    NUMBER 4:Boeing YAL-1 Airborne Laser
    [​IMG]
    Developer: Boeing/U.S. Air Force

    What it is: The Boeing YAL-1 Airborne Laser (ABL) is designed to intercept and shoot down Tactical Ballistic Missiles (TBM) with a Chemical Oxygen Iodine Laser (COIL) mounted on the nose and hood of a modified Boeing 747. The ABL heats the missile from the inside out until it explodes. The ABL is capable of shooting a missile at the speed of light from a range of hundreds of miles out.

    What it does: Four sensors pick up on the heat signature and vapor trail of the missile initiating the destruction sequence. First, the laser on the hood fires, calculating the course and speed of the missile, then a series of three other lasers on the aircraft’s nose calculate the trajectory of the missile and the atmospheric turbulence it causes. All of this data is fed back to the ABL. Once changes are made, the COIL laser fires from the nose heating the missile and causing it to crack and explode. The whole process takes 8 to 12 seconds.

    Why war needs it: Boeing’s YAL-1 Airborne Laser can shoot down missiles infinitely faster and more accurately than any other anti-ballistic weapon. Its classified range is somewhere outside hundreds of miles, so it can destroy missiles before they ever leave enemy territory, and can probably never be shot down.

    Active duty: The ABL took its first test flight in 2002 and was scheduled to be ready for 2008, but it was delayed for further testing. It’s now $6.3 billion over budget with an uncertain future.

    NUMBER 3 SWORDS Weaponized Robot
    [​IMG]
    Developer: TALON Robotics at Foster-Miller (U.S.)

    What it is: Imagine a soldier that doesn’t eat, doesn’t sleep and as it lines you up for a kill, you can't even look into its eyes and plead for mercy. This is SWORDS: The world’s first weaponized robot and what Time magazine called, “One of the greatest inventions of the 21st century. ... It can be outfitted with everything from a machine gun to a rocket or grenade launcher, seriously violating Asimov’s three laws of robotics."

    What it does: The three-foot 100-pound robot can climb stairs, go underwater at a depth of 100 feet and navigate through snow, sand and rock at the same pace as a running soldier. It can see in the dark, has infrared vision and its two zoom cameras are so detailed they can pick up the name on your nametag and see whether your weapon is cocked from 1,000 feet away. The SWORDS is operated from a computer remote control posted at a distance of 15 football fields.

    Why war needs it: Even though it’s not smart enough to replace soldiers on the battlefield completely, since it is still operated by remote control, SWORDS can execute missions too dangerous for humans with its operator at a safe and undetectable distance from the action.

    Active duty: In 2007, three TALON SWORDS robots were deployed on missions in Iraq.

    NUMBER 2 HYPERSONIC MISSILES

    (i)IND & RUSSIA: BrahMos II
    [​IMG]

    (ii)US-X-51
    [​IMG]
    A hypersonic cruise missile would travel at least 5 times the speed of sound. These are still in the developmental stage.Absolute zero reaction
    time for enemy's air defence & long range & deeper penetratibiltiy to hardened targets.can be nuclear capable

    Imagine having the ability to strike anywhere in the world within one hour. The X-51 is an amazing hypersonic cruise missile that travels 600 miles in just ten minutes (approximately 3600 MPH or Mach 5).

    Compared with the Tomahawk Missile which travels at a mere 550 MPH, the X51 gives the US the ability to strike enemies quickly before they can evade. As U.S. Strategic Command’s deputy commander Lt. Gen. C. Robert Kehler puts it, the goal of the X51 is “to strike virtually anywhere on the face of the Earth within 60 minutes.”
    The power of this weapon once it reaches its unfortunate target is amazing.
    Traveling as fast as 13,000 mph, the warheads are filled with scored tungsten rods with twice the strength of steel. Just above the target, the warheads detonate, showering the area with thousands of rods-each one up to 12 times as destructive as a .50-caliber bullet. Anything within 3000 sq. ft. of this whirling, metallic storm is obliterated.
    The X-51 Will be the most advanced cruise / long distance missile in the world when it is completed, although there have been protests that the X-51 could trigger a nuclear war. A test run of this weapon in 2008 could appear to be heading toward another nuclear power during portions of its flight pattern which could be provoking. More about this concept can be read at Popular Mechanics

    NUMBER1: EMP Bomb
    [​IMG]
    An electromagnetic pulse bomb is a weapon destined to destroy the electric and electronic infrastructure of a particular target. Considering the fact that electricity powers almost every single device currently used around the world, it's not hard to imagine the kind of panic the detonation of an electromagnetic pulse bomb would trigger. Computers, television, refrigerators, cars, telephones, trams and many other essential devices using electricity to function would become useless in the event of an electromagnetic pulse attack.

    How it works


    The idea behind a simple electromagnetic pulse bomb basically involves the creation of a massive electromagnetic field. Light, radio, x-ray, microwave are all types of electromagnetic radiation, which is a self-propagating wave composed of an electric field oscillating perpendicular to a magnetic field. Both the electric and magnetic fields are in phase and oscillate perpendicular to the direction of propagation. Electric currents can generate magnetic field, while variable magnetic fields can induce electric currents into the conductors in its vicinity.

    Usually, electric and electronic devices use just enough power to function correctly, any bigger than that and the electric and electronic components would suffer damage beyond repair. This is exactly the weakness targeted by the electromagnetic pulse bomb. The intense electromagnetic pulse generates a massive magnetic field, thus inducing extra electrical current into the electric circuits, overloading component, eventually triggering a malfunction.

    Types of EMP bombs

    There are several ways an electromagnetic pulse can be triggered, one of them being through the detonation of a nuclear weapon, by the Compton effect. As the nuclear device is being detonated, intense electromagnetic energy is released, which in turn interacts with the atoms in the Earth's atmosphere that become ionized. The electrons released during the ionization are then picked up by the Earth's powerful magnetic field, thus creating a fluctuating electric current that generates a magnetic field. An electromagnetic pulse was created.

    Alternatively, electromagnetic pulses can be generated through non-nuclear techniques, such as high power microwaves. Flux compression generator bombs are yet another type of electromagnetic pulse bombs. They basically consist of a metal cylinder which is surrounded by a coil. The metal cylinder is filled with explosive.

    When the coil of the bomb is powered and electrical current is generated, a magnetic field is created. Then, the explosive is detonated with the help of a fuse. As the shock of the explosion propagates, the metal cylinder is forced to come in contact with the coil winding, triggering a short circuit that results in the creation of a compressed magnetic field, thus of an electromagnetic pulse.

    Thermobaric weapon
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    A thermobaric weapon, which includes the type known as a "fuel-air bomb", is an explosive weapon that produces a blast wave of a significantly longer duration than those produced by condensed explosives. This is useful in military applications where its longer duration increases the numbers of casualties and causes more damage to structures. There are many different variants of thermobaric weapons rounds that can be fitted to hand held lanchers such as RPGs and antitank weapons.
    Thermobaric explosives rely on oxygen from the surrounding air, whereas most conventional explosives consist of a fuel-oxidizer premix (for instance, gunpowder contains 15% fuel and 75% oxidizer). Thus, on a weight-for-weight basis they are significantly more energetic than normal condensed explosives. Their reliance on atmospheric oxygen makes them unsuitable for use underwater, at high altitude or in adverse weather. However, they have significant advantages when deployed inside confined environments such as tunnels, caves, and bunkers.

    FUTURE TANKS

    BAE 'S ELECTRONIC STEALTH TANK
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    So called ‘stealth’ tanks are being developed by BAE workers in an attempt to mask military vehicles on the battlefield. Imagine being fired upon by an enemy you know is close but who cannot see you; it’s like something straight out of a sci-fi blockbuster.

    The high-tech paint which is used in the process is wired to a number of sensors which detect the makeup of the surroundings of the tank. So, if the tank is surrounded by shrubbery, the tank paint will replicate that surrounding, making the tank nearly invisible. This concept is identical to the changing camouflage of numerous reptiles in the Amazon.

    This eliminates the problems of armoured vehicles which have been painted for use in an area such as the Afghan desert, and are exposed when traveling through the patches of vegetation and farmland. It also adapts to changes in weather (Eg. Snow or fog).

    The UK government hopes that this paint can be applied to other vehicles, such as naval vessels and military aircraft in the future.

    This new paint won’t be enough to thwart most modern weapons systems, which normally rely on more than visual elements to detect enemies (such as heat, sound, and laser sensors). That said, it does make for a great defense against your average shoulder-fired system and irregular and unsophisticated armies such as the Taliban.

    FUTURE NUCLEAR WEAPONS

    1Antimatter weapon
    [​IMG]
    An antimatter weapon is a hypothetical device using antimatter as a power source, a propellant, or an explosive for a weapon. Antimatter weapons do not currently exist due to the cost of production and the limited technology available to produce and contain antimatter in sufficient quantities for it to be a useful weapon. The United States Air Force, however, has been interested in military uses — including destructive applications — of antimatter since the Cold War, when it began funding antimatter-related physics research. The primary theoretical advantage of such a weapon is that antimatter and matter collisions, though significantly limited by neutrino losses, still convert a larger fraction of the weapon's mass into explosive energy than a fusion reaction in a hydrogen bomb, which is on the order of only 0.7%

    2.RNEP( ROBUST NUCLEAR EARTH PENETRATOR)
    [​IMG]
    Bunker-busting nuclear weapons, also known as earth-penetrating weapons (EPW), are a type of nuclear weapon designed to penetrate into soil, rock, or concrete to deliver a nuclear warhead to a target. These weapons would be used to destroy hardened, underground military bunkers buried deep in the ground. In theory, the amount of radioactive nuclear fallout would be reduced from that of a standard, air-burst nuclear detonation because they would have relatively low explosive yield. However because such weapons necessarily come into contact with large amounts of earth-based debris, they may, under certain circumstances, still generate fallout. Warhead yield and weapon design have changed periodically throughout the history of the design of such weapons. In general, these weapons deliver more "useful" destruction because unlike air bursts, the energy yield does not dissipate into the air.

    3.W88 WARHEAD
    [​IMG]
    The W88 is a warhead used by the Navy on the Trident II missile. The W-88 is a miniaturized, tapered thermonuclear warhead. It is the United States’ most sophisticated strategic thermonuclear weapon. In the US arsenal, the W-88 warhead is mated to the D-5 submarine-launched ballistic missile carried aboard the Trident nuclear submarine. The Los Alamos National Laboratory program to develop the W88 warhead for the Trident II 5D missile was completed in 1989. The W88 is one of two types of warheads on US submarine launched missiles. There are now nearly 400 W88 warheads in the stockpile and more than 3,000 W76s, the other warhead on US submarine launched missiles.

    PL-21
    [​IMG]

    A new long-range active radar homing AAM has been under development. Based on some of the PL-12 technology, PL-21 appears similar to British Meteror. It features an active radar seeker and an integrated ramjet/solid rocket motor with a single belly air inlet. PL-21 also features 4 small stabilzing fins behind the active radar seeker, a characteristics of Russian R-27/AA-10. Two-way datalink antennas may be installed in the tail section for mid-course correction. The effective range of PL-21 is expected to be >100km. The missile might be carried by the new J-11B fighter for long-range interception. The latest rumor suggested that the first ground launch test took place in March 2010. The development was projected to be completed by 2012.

    II WVRAAM OR SHORT RANGE AAM
    Fifth generation
    The latest generation of short-range missiles again defined by advances in seeker technologies, this time electro-optical imaging infrared (IIR) seekers that allow the missiles to “see” images rather than single “points” of infrared radiation (heat). The sensors combined with more powerful digital signal processing provide the following benefits:
    greater infrared counter countermeasures (IRCCM) ability, by being able to distinguish aircraft from infrared countermeasures (IRCM) such as flares.
    greater sensitivity means greater range and ability to identify smaller low flying targets such as UAVs.
    more detailed target image allows targeting of more vulnerable parts of aircraft instead of just homing in on the brightest infrared source (exhaust).

    1 AIM-132 ASRAAM
    [​IMG]
    The AIM-132 Advanced Short Range Air-to-Air Missile is an infrared homing ("heat seeking") air-to-air missile, produced by MBDA
    This seeker has a long acquisition range, high countermeasures resistance, approximately 90 degrees off-boresight lock-on capability, and the possibility to designate specific parts of the targeted aircraft (like cockpit, engines, etc.). The ASRAAM also has a LOAL (Lock-On After Launch) ability which is a distinct advantage when the missile is carried in an internal bay such as in the upcoming F-35 Lightning II.
    RANGE -300 m – 18 km

    2.US AIM-9X-2 Block II Sidewinder
    [​IMG]
    The AIM-9X Sidewinder, developed by Raytheon engineers, entered service in November 2003 with the USAF (lead platform is the F-15C; the USN lead platform is the F/A-18C) and is a substantial upgrade to the Sidewinder family featuring an imaging infrared focal plane array (FPA) seeker with claimed 90° off-boresight capability, compatibility with helmet-mounted displays such as the new U.S. Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System, and a totally new three-dimensional thrust-vectoring control (TVC) system providing increased turn capability over traditional control surfaces
    RANGE -18-25 KM

    3.PYTHON 5
    [​IMG]
    The Python-5 is currently the most able AAM in Israel's inventory and one of the most advanced AAMs in the world. It has BVR (beyond visual range), LOAL (lock-on after launch), and all-aspect, all-direction (including backward) attack ability. The missile features an advanced electro-optical imaging infrared seeker (IIR or ImIR) which scans the target area for hostile aircraft, then locks-on for terminal chase. With a total of eighteen control surfaces and careful design, the resulting missile is supposed to be as maneuverable as air-to-air missiles with thrust vectoring nozzles.
    Guidance: IR + electro-optical imaging
    Warhead: 11 kg
    Range: >20 km
    Speed: Mach 4

    FUTURE BOMBERS

    1:US 2018 BOMBER
    [​IMG]
    The Next-Generation Bomber program (formerly called the 2018 Bomber) is a medium bomber under development by the United States Air Force. It was originally projected to enter service around 2018 as a super stealthy, subsonic, medium range, medium payload "B-3" type system to augment and possibly to a limited degree replace the U.S. Air Force's aging bomber fleet.

    2 RUSSIA PAK DA
    [​IMG]
    The PAK DA will be a new, stealthy, strategic bomber and is expected to enter service in the 2025–30 timeframe The Russian Air Force has tactical and technical requirements for a new generation of strategic bombers, as reported by Interfax. According to some sources, the PAK DA will be based on the supersonic Tu-160 bomber.[2] Later references to the new bomber, including a televised address from Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, seem to imply the aircraft will be an entirely new design. Some speculation suggests that it might follow the stealthy design of the America B-2 Spirit bomber, but there is little public evidence to support that.[3]
    Russian Maj. Gen. Anatoly Zhikharev has stated that the new bomber will replace both the turboprop-powered Tupolev Tu-95 and the supersonic Tupolev Tu-160.

    FUTURE WMD

    1.HAARP High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program, HAARP
    [​IMG]
    The HAARP Program is jointly managed by the US Air Force and the US Navy, and is based in Gakona, Alaska. It is designed to "understand, simulate and control ionospheric processes that might alter the performance of communication and surveillance systems." The HAARP system intends to beam 3.6 Gigawatts of effective radiated power of high frequency radio energy into the ionosphere in order to:
    Generate extremely low frequency (ELF) waves for communicating with submerged submarines
    Conduct geophysical probes to identify and characterize natural ionospheric processes so that techniques can be developed to mitigate or control them
    Generate ionospheric lenses to focus large amounts of high frequency energy, thus providing a means of triggering ionospheric processes that potentially could be exploited for Department of Defense purposes,
    Electron acceleration for infrared (IR) and other optical emissions which could be used to control radio wave propagation properties
    Generate geomagnetic field aligned ionization to control the reflection/scattering properties of radio waves,
    Use oblique heating to produce effects on radio wave propagation, thus broadening the potential military applications of ionospheric enhancement technology.

    Let us examine still more aspects of this HAARP technology that is pouring such enormous quantities of energy into our upper atmosphere. Researches quickly found that this technology could be used in ways other than just to control the weather. They discovered they had stumbled upon a weapon which could be used most effectively, to destroy, destroy, and destroy some more, with the vast majority of the peoples of the world completely unaware of what was happening to them. After all, most people today still believe that the control of the basic weather of this planet is out of the control of mankind.

    Now, let us examine some of the concerns of these New Age scientists of the damage HAARP can inflict upon the earth. HAARP can:

    1. Create Earthquakes on demand wherever and whenever you wish on the earth. [Pages 18, 26 speak of using HAARP to create earthquake. However, our military discovered, by accident, how to create earthquakes using slightly different technology. Listen to the specific earthquake caused on page 47]. "The planetary-scale engineers tried to replace a ten by forty kilometer section of the ionosphere with a 'telecommunications shield' of 350,000 copper needles tossed into orbit ... when the military sent up a band of tiny copper wires into the ionosphere to orbit the planet so as to 'reflect radio waves and make reception clearer', we had the 8.5 Alaska earthquake and Chile lost a good deal of its coast. That band of copper wires interfered with the planetary magnetic field."
    2. Manipulate Global Weather Systems, changing weather patterns, rainfall, drought [Page 19, 26]
    3. Earth going wild in its rotation, possibly spinning out of control [page 21]
    4. Redirecting Jet Streams [Page 34, 39]
    5. Redirecting flow of Electrojet Stream [Page 41]
    6. Magnifying and Focussing sunlight, called 'Skybusting' [Page 35]. This process could burn holes in the protective ozone layers, thus allowing intense sunlight to pour through, burning mankind severely [Page 57]. Look at Revelation 16:8.
    7. Mind Control [Page 17-18, 26]. Using extremely low frequency bombardment at just the same frequency as the human brain operates, you can change a person's thoughts or emotions. God help us all when and if wicked men achieves finesse with this weapon!
    8. HAARP can create nuclear-sized explosions without radiation! [Page 38, 62]. This process is protected by patent 4,873,928. This might be the "great" sword being wielded by the forces of Antichrist in Revelation 6:4. With this weapon, you could attack targets with nuclear-sized explosions without having to deliver nuclear warheads on missiles, or on aircraft, or any carrier!! This development could render all military calculations about how to defend against an enemy's attack completely useless.'


    2 .NANOTECHNOLOGY WEAPONS
    A nanofactory that could build high-performance products directly from blueprints in a few hours would have many applications. One obvious product family is weapons, including weapons of mass destruction (WMDs). Higher strength, power density, and functional density would improve a number of existing weapon designs. It would also enable new classes of weapons. For example, UAV’s in a wide range of sizes could perform surveillance, sabotage, or antipersonnel missions far beyond what is currently contemplated.
    Nanotechnology could be used to create "miniaturized nuclear weapons" that would have virtually no fallout, and super-efficient bioterrorism, warns Jane's Defense Quarterly. And they could be triggered with a super-laser!
    Nanotechnology, in which materials are machined on a molecule-by-molecule, or atom-by-atom basis, could produce super-nukes that are so tiny, they don't technically qualify as weapons of mass destruction, Jane's has warned in past articles.

    In one 2003 article, Jane's warns that "some advanced technology, such as superlaser" could trigger a relatively small thermonuclear explosion involving a deuterium-tritium mixture, in a device weighing no more than a few kilograms. The device could go from a fraction of a ton to "many tens of tons" of high-explosive equivalent yield, and because they use little to no fissionable materials, they would have "virtually no radioactive fallout." Self-replicating nanotech could also produce conventional weapons in such quantities that they would become WMDs.
