COM-BAT



Recently the US Army has awarded the University of Michigan College of Engineering a five year, $10-million grant to help develop a robotic spy plane. The grant establishes the U-M Center for Objective Microelectronics and Biomimetic Advanced Technology i.e. COM-BAT in short. The US Army may renew the grant for an additional 5 years and $12.5-million.
The objective of the project is to develop a six-inch robotic spy plane modeled after a bat would gather data from sights, sounds and smells in urban combat zones and transmit information back to a soldier in real time.
