MAVs are part of a new breed of remotely controlled aircraft that are significantly smaller than currently available remotely controlled aircraft. Most are only about six inches long. Future development of insect-size aircraft is expected in the near future. MAVs are of great interest to the Air Force because of a variety of critical new military needs, chiefly in urban areas. Over 70 attendees from universities around the world including the United Kingdom, Germany, Australia, Canada and the United States, participated. Government attendees included representatives from the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), the Navy Research Laboratory (NRL), and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). Additionally several industry representatives from companies such as Boeing took part in the program.
