Army Wants Mini-Drones For Its Squads By 2018

Of course the Army wants mini-drones for our troops. Think of all the practical applications where using drones could actually save lives. Other countries have been using mini-drone technology for a few years now, it's about time our troops do as well.

The service on March 1 requested information papers from industry on what technology might be available for what it’s calling Soldier Borne Sensors. The Maneuver Center of Excellence at Fort Benning, Georgia, has a preliminary set of requirements and plans to go back-and-forth with industry on what already exists or could become quickly available.
