Micro Air Vehicles (MAV) are the official name for the growing array of tiny robots that have begun to take flight. The reconstruction of nature is seen by researchers as the best way to introduce MAV on a wide scale.  A group of even smaller surveillance drones called NAV (nano air vehicles) already have been commissioned based on this final hurdle being overcome: mapleseed drones; sparrow drones by 2015, and dragonfly drones to fly in swarms by 2030. Or how about a sky full of drones modeled from jellyfish?

RoboBee already has taken flight in search of an answer for autonomous pollination, search and rescue, hazardous exploration, military surveillance, climate mapping, and traffic monitoring – to name a few of the slated functions.

The scientific propaganda for the development of these drones is always important to note, as it represents how these will…
