Is HUMINT going to be partly replaced by INSECTINT? Sounds unrealistic, but..

Futurology, a cyber-mosquito could bee a surveillance device.

Based on those of real-life insects, tiny aerial vehicles are being developed with innovative flapping wings.

The devices are incorporating micro-cameras.

These revolutionary insect-size vehicles will be suitable for many different purposes ranging from helping in emergency situations considered too dangerous for people to enter, spionage or to covert military surveillance missions.

Is Human Intelligence (HUMINT) going to be partly replaced by INTEL provided by cyber insects converted as spies and surveillance devices? Think what could happen with a “cyber mosquito” spying a terrorist meeting? Interesting..

Supported by the U.S. Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), research at the University of Oxford is playing a key role in the vehicles’ development. RETURN TO HOMEPAGE.

Dr. Richard Bomphrey, from the Department of Zoology, is leading this research. “Nature has solved the problem of how to design miniature flying machines,” he says. “By learning those lessons, our findings will..READ MORE HERE
