Micro and Nano Drones
The use of drones is making headlines, both for military and peaceful purposes. Tiny drones in particular are being used in covert surveillance, and also in areas of natural and man made catastrophes to map and plan rescue activities. From birds to insects, to spiders and snakes, learn how scientists are copying nature to create the drone armies of the future. This 28-page report, priced at 195 UK pounds includes links to all the relevant websites.

Mechanical birds, insects, spiders and snakes – how scientists are copying nature to create the drone army of the future.
With the advent of ultra-small electronic devices, micro and nanotech combined with a greater understanding of flight and motion, the idea that flying and crawling creatures could be emulated has become a reality. Many companies and research groups across the globe are working on a variety of animal-like forms that can be mass produced, sent into battle, transmit a variety of data and be very difficult to detect or disable.
Here, a recent history and examples of micro and nano drone research and development involving live and robotic insects, bees, butterflies, dragonflies, spiders, snakes and even birds for surveillance and other are described, with links.
