Seems like the U.S. Military is stepping up their game with the FORESTER radar system. Installed in the newly upgraded Boeing A160T Hummingbird, it allows the unmanned robocopter to see through dense trees and other foliage.

Designed specifically for this aircraft, the FORESTER radar system "works by using the craft's movement to create an artificially large aperture, letting it detect slow-moving targets, even if they're hiding under a thick tree canopy," according to Dvice. I guess enemies will now think twice when finding cover in forests. Stats for Foliage Penetrating Robocopters Trending: Older & Warm
