Israel is developing a robot the size of a hornet to attack terrorists. Micro Air Vehicles, or MAVs, are much closer than that.
British Special Forces already use 6-inch MAV aircraft called WASPs for reconnaissance in Afghanistan. The U.S. Air Force sees future MAVs landing and hopping or crawling on the ground like insects, enabling them to get inside buildings to disable power or deliver bombs.
