The planet has dished out many recent instances of earthquakes, hurricanes and floods, and to insure civilization has a shot at surviving the extreme effects of global warming, the 'Swarming Micro Air' Vehicle Network has arrived for backup. These sophisticated battery-powered flying robots will be able to get clear lines of vision while avoiding ruined terrain.

Communicating within the 'Swarming Micro Air' Vehicle Network will involve a sharing of photographic, video and GPS data. Now able to stay in flight for just 30 minutes, these airborne robots are getting lighter, cheaper, smarter and will efficiently carry out a rescue mission.
