Bio-Inspired Innovation and National Security
Robert E. Armstrong, et al., editors. This volume is about applications of the biological sciences, here called -biologically inspired innovations, - to the military. Rather than treating biology as a series of threats to be dealt with, such innovations generally approach the biological sciences as a set of opportunities for the military to gain strategic advantage over adversaries. These opportunities range from looking at everything from genes to brains, from enhancing human performance to creating renewable energy, from sensing the environment around us to harnessing its power.
