Nanotechnology is one of, if not the, most important assets to the Empire of the Rising Sun's military and industrial complexes. While the manufacturing use of nanites is obvious, their military applications were untested until the Empire entered World War 3.

Nanites have the power to build, and to take apart, but what caught the interests of many Imperial engineers was their ability to merely just sit around. While one nanite has minimal mass, acting together many nanites could form a barrier that nothing could pass through.

Imperial Engineers devised a way of "programming" a swarm of nanites to form a spherical shield; The cloud could not move or differentiate between friendly or hostile forces, but a larger area could be covered and held until the nanites ran out of power. In essence, a whole area could be completely locked down, nothing could come in or out (indeed, by latching onto whatever was inside the swarm, enemy units could be kept from moving altogether). A large housing/computing structure or "Hive" could be constructed on the battlefield to allow tactical use of the nanoswarm.

Imperial Commanders put these Nanoswarm Hives to great effect; they could shield their own base or units, or lock down those of the enemy. Many claim that the Nanoswarm is just as effective for the Empire as the [[Iron Curtain]] or [[Chronosphere]] is for their enemies.
