DARPA's Nano Air Vehicle (NAV) program aims to develop a miniscule "air vehicle system" that's less than 15 centimeters long and weighs less than 20 grams. One experimental design incorporates flapping wings, disguised here as a hummingbird, making it possible for the device to navigate both indoors and outdoors. DARPA expects the NAVs to push the limits of aerodynamics and maneuverability.
