Tiny Surveillance ‘Helicopters’ as Soldiers’ Security Tools

size0

Wow! The U.S. Army is developing “a pocket-sized aerial surveillance “helicopter” drone for soldiers and small units operating on unfamiliar ground.” That word (with the above photo) comes from the DefenseTech blog, and it’s fascinating.

The aim is, even, to enable soldiers to look room-to-room in buildings they might be checking out. Palm-sized, the device would provide real-time video for up to 20 minutes for a soldier controlling it.
