Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. A miniature UAV or Small UAV, is an unmanned aerial vehicle small enough to be man-portable. Miniature UAVs range from micro air vehicles that can be carried by an infantryman, to man-portable UAVs that can be carried and launched like an infantry anti-aircraft missile. The notion that small, even very small, UAVs might have practical uses arose in the early 1990s. In 1992, DARPA conducted a workshop titled "Future Technology-Driven Revolutions In Military Operations." One of the topics in the workshop was "mobile microrobots." The idea of using very small "microdrones" was discussed, and after initial skepticism the idea started to gain momentum.show more
