M.A.V. Air Force spy bugs

Semi autonomous miniature flying weapons platforms that look like bugs, what NOT to like?

Some days I wish I had a Pentagon size budget, I really do. Does this video give you a warm and fuzzy feeling thinking about the advantage it gives our troops? Or does it make you wonder what our government will really be doing with these things?

  • I saw this and wondered if (hoped?) it was a counter espionage/psy-ops piece to keep our foes looking over their shoulders. Imagine the sensors and autonomous software and processing power needed to land a UAV on a power line.

    It seems like far-fetched science fiction... like space planes, stealth aircraft, night vision, video phones, space stations... oh...

  • Does it give me a warm fuzzy? No, of course not. They'll be using this surveillance as much on American citizens as much as on enemy troops. In the future, we are all suspects foreign and domestic to the government.

  • What is up with all the CGI? So the real thing has not been created yet? It looks pretty cool :)

    Anyways if these things become real then spy agencies (including our own) from all over the world will be having an arms race to see who can create an effective countermeasure. Perhaps a portable and directional EMP pulse weapon.

  • "The Insectothopter was a miniature unmanned aerial vehicle developed by the United States Central Intelligence Agency's research and development office in the 1970s. The Insectothopter was the size of a dragonfly, and was hand-painted to look like one. It was powered by a small gasoline engine to make the wings move and was fueled by a very small amount of gas.[1] The project was abandoned when the Insectothopter was found to be too difficult to control in crosswinds."

  • simple wire mesh around a target would stop a MAV and if if vaporised a hole through the net it would show up and be instantly killed by the defence, still, a great piece of kit when it's made.
