However, it is not possible to use the same devices in areas with limited space, for example, in residential areas, inside buildings, and so on. Therefore, the U.S. Army intends to equip its soldiers with miniature drones by 2018, similar to those already used in the troops of Norway and the UK.

True, there is one such mini-drone complete with a control system of about $ 190 thousand apiece.

Received photo and video materials must arrive at the operator’s controller in real time. At the same time, objects captured from a distance of 15-20 m should be distinguishable by 90% – this applies to both people and other comparable objects.
