Nanotechnology has opened the doors for various novel defence applications, such as smart materials, novel fuel sources, energy storage devices, harder/lighter platforms and newer medical applications. Uses of composites instead of steel allow the possible assembling of lightweight aircraft, consequently reducing fuel consumption, CO$_2$ emissions and fuel costs. Because of their enhanced mechanical, electrical and thermal properties, these polymer nanocomposites and materials have been found in several defence-related areas, such as the military, automobile, electronics, food and leisure. This overview aims to provide insight into the rapidly developing capabilities of lightweight nanofiller-reinforced polymer nanocomposite materials and explore their potential uses in various defence-related applications.
