A miniature UAV or Small UAV (SUAV), [ 1 ] is an unmanned aerial vehicle small enough to be man-portable. Miniature UAVs range from micro air vehicles (MAVs) that can be carried by an infantryman, to man-portable UAVs that can be carried and launched like an infantry anti-aircraft missile . [ edit ] MAVs & mesicopters The notion that small, even very small, UAVs might have practical uses arose in the early 1990s. In 1992, DARPA conducted a workshop titled "Future Technology-Driven Revolutions In Military Operations".
Starting this thread to separate the Booz information away from the huge general Paparazzi thread and as requested by the PPZ store owner so as not to advertise in his thread. Booz is Quad Rotor UAV project that uses some of the Paparazzi code as its base, it is Open Source and licensed under the GPL license.
