Molecular nanotechnology - the ability to build structures to complex, atomic specifications by means of mechanosynthesis. Mechanosynthesis is any chemical synthesis in which reaction outcomes are determined by the use of mechanical constraints to direct reactive molecules to specific molecular sites.
Powered exoskeleton - The main function of a powered exoskeleton is to assist the wearer by boosting their strength and enduranceSelf-reconfiguring
modular robot - robots that change shape according to the needs, leading to self-organizing robots. E.g. "Distributed flight array".
Swarm robotics - large numbers of mostly simple physical robots. It is supposed that a desired collective behavior emerges from the interactions between the robots and interactions of robots with the environment. They may be capable of self-organization, self-replication, self-construction.
· Unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), unmanned aircraft commonly known as a "drone"
· Unmanned surface vehicle (USV), for the operation on the surface of the water
· Autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) or unmanned undersea vehicle (UUV), for the operation underwater
