The article deals with analyses of prospects for relationship between nanotechnology and applied linguistics in the field of information functioning in automated nanosystems of various types, including the use of lexical units of the semantic field – nanotechnology; to review the state of lexicographic and terminological sources of professional language in the field of nanotechnology and nanotechnology industry in the general system of information security of the state.
Modern information security is formed at the micro- and nano-levels, which contributes to finding new solutions with numerous possibilities of civil and military application. The authors prove that the development of modern nanotechnological devices allows to obtain a potential that might be compared with the factor of ruinability of the mass destruction weapon. One of the most frightening prospects is the emergence of nanorobots with elements of collective intelligence, which could use the natural environment for the creation of similar machines. From this perspective, the modern nanotechnologies are a new class of armaments. Therefore, there is a general need to investigate the whole paradigm of nanotechnology in order to identify positive and negative effects of their use, in particular, in the field of the analysis of nanotechnology and nanomaterials’ therminosystems, examination of the mechanisms of their formation, identification of the main features of the terms. The linguistic support (determining the language of representation and information management) is a link between the “natural” and the information environment.

Key words: nanotechnology, applied linguistics, nanoindustry, linguocybernetics, behavioral science, cognitive linguistics, state security, cybernetic systems.
