Bird-Like Microdrones Poised to Swoop Into Battle

#1
Most people associate drones with the large unmanned aircraft carrying out airstrikes and surveillance missions over Afghanistan and Pakistan. But here at an industry conference for the U.S. military's "secret warriors" -- the special operations community -- the increasing focus is on small, stealthy drones that can swoop in and spy on potential enemies.

Years ago most people associated strange things in the Nevada desert and later, over Europe with space aliens. We now know it was stealth technology.

Expect reports of strange black birds hovering above your home. And shadowing your children on their way to school. And your dogs.

Especially if you voted against me in the Bad CO thing. Be afraid. Be very afraid.

Well they can get their own bloody bread crumbs. Any that land on my bird table will get a .22 pellet up their jacksies.

Minature drones to "spy"? Well, up to a point.....

LMAMS (Lethal Minature Aerial Munitions System)

"The LMAMS is designed to provide a soldier carried, soldier ground launched Non-Line-Of-Sight (NLOS) loitering precision guided system organic at the small unit level that allows unprecedented engagement of enemy combatants without exposing the Warfighter to direct enemy fires. "

Want some. Now.

Battlefields are rapidly turning into an Iain Banks novel... How long before we start getting self aware warships I wonder?

This thing did rather put me in mind of the 'Knife Missile'...
