Will tiny drones become a must-have for soldiers?

• cnn.com by Matt McFarland

Aerovironment, a drone supplier for the U.S. military, has introduced a tiny drone that's designed to be worn on a soldier's uniform. The Snipe, which weighs about as much as a baseball, can be launched from the palm of one's hand. It's designed for close-range surveillance and reconnaissance.

The Snipe has no weapons built in. Its value is in providing aerial video, so soldiers have a better understanding of their surroundings.

The quadcopter can fly for about 15 minutes and reach 20 mph. It is controlled via a tablet.

In addition to the military, Aerovironment envisions selling the drone to first responders.
