In a special report, a drone so small in shape of a dragonfly has the capability to go deep into the enemy territory and give its current information with a high-powered camera.
A statement released by the Draper Labs, which says the lab along with the Howard Hughes Medical Institute at Janelia Research Campus has created one of the smallest drones known to humankind so far. This drone is in the shape of a dragonfly, which looks like a cyborg, as the dragonfly is almost identical to a real one in many aspects, and the institution can build in huge numbers to support soldiers and support teams in battlefields.
The main purpose of these cyborg dragonflies will be to gather intelligence and reconnaissance, which includes spying inside an enemy territory to locate a terrorist activity or its plan.
By far the drone is named by the researchers in Draper and Howard Hughes as “DragonflEye,” whose first customer will be the US military in its every intelligence gathering aspects.
As per many experts in this field of drones and unmanned vehicles, they see this project as one of the most useful for many ways, and this should not only limit to the battlefield, because of its structure and usefulness one can use in any humanitarian jobs. Suppose in an earthquake to find a missing person inside a building structure or any other places.
For now, the DragonflEye will be with the US military soon, after that the maker can offer this insect cyborg to other buyers.
