Lockheed Martin set to make seed-sized spy plane

Abstract:
The U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has awarded Lockheed Martin a $1.7-million, 10-month contract to design a remotely controlled nano air vehicle (NAV) that is capable of collecting military intelligence both indoors and in urban outdoor environments.

(Ed.'s note: "nano" in this case simply means smaller than normal planes. This is not nanotechnology, any more than "nanosatellites" are. This is another example of muddying the terminology waters.)
