What are Mavs?? Multi functional, militarily capable, small flight vehicles. Size should be less than 15cms. Reynolds's no<10^5. Primarily intended to develop for defense application. Lift of flight are made by rotatory wings or flapping wings
RQ-16T-HAWK The RQ-16 T-Hawk , a Micro Air Vehicle (MAV), flies over a simulated combat area during an operational test flight. The MAV is in the operational test phase with military Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) teams to evaluate its short-range scouting capabilities.
Black widow The Black Widow is the current state-of-the-art MAV and is an important benchmark. It is the product of 4 years of research by Aerovironment and DARPA. The Black Widow has a 6-inch wingspan and weighs roughly 56 grams . The plane has a flight range of 1.8 kilometres, a flight endurance time of 30 minutes, and a max altitude of 769 feet. The plane carries a surveillance camera.
