The US Army has put in an order for Black Hornet Personal Reconnaissance Drones, drone planes small enough to fit in a soldiers pocket.
Able to covertly and continuously cover the battlefield at ranges up to 1.24 miles for nearly half an hour, these tiny drones can send back real-time video and high-definition photos to the operator.
Pocket-sized drones are on their way to US Army soldiers, offering a better view of the battlefield and giving them a lethal edge over enemies.
The Army has awarded FLIR Systems a $39.6 million contract to provide Black Hornet Personal Reconnaissance Drones, next-level technology which could be a total game changer for US troops in the field, the company revealed in a recent press release.
