Robotic Spy Insect Funded


The Daily Mail reported that a micro robotic dragonfly equipped with a mike and camera is just one of many projects to be funded in the UK, in a massive 800,000,000 pound intelligence initiative. The nearly $1 billion investment in advanced military tech will include laser weapons. The report described an innovation unit that will develop technology in a 10-year initiative. 

The program will be a transformation inthe way the UK's military and intelligence agencies will deal with future security threats. It is also seen as a bulwark supporting the UK economy, and is said to be run by Britain's best and brightest. "Backed by a defence budget that will rise every year until the end of the decade, it will ensure that the UK maintains its military advantage in an increasingly dangerous world."
