One thing we've thought long and hard about is dual-use technology.  Since we're developing a telecommunications system for disasters, this definitely has applications for both civilian and military groups.  We need to somehow ensure that our efforts do not contribute to the biggest man-made disaster of all time: war.

But a simple "No Military Use" clause is silly; what if the military was called into a situation to help in disaster relief?  Should they be barred from using the device just because of their organizational affiliation?
