      Dr. Robert Wood of Harvard University is experimenting with insect-sized flapping wings to help build the next generation of Micro Aerial Vehicles (MAVs). The end goal for the Air Force, which is funding the research, is insect-sized MAVs that can explore caves on the battlefield, hazardous environments, and collapsed buildings after earthquakes and similar tragedies. Insect-sized MAVs can remain stealthy and enter spaces current generation MAVs cannot. Here is the link: http://militaryouterlimits.blogspot.com/
