Honeywell will produce 90 unmanned aerial vehicles weighing just 17 pounds each under a $65 million Pentagon contract. The T-Hawk Micro Air Vehicle is small enough to be carried in a backpack and is designed to transmit reconnaissance photos from dangerous areas without exposing soldiers to enemy fire. The T-Hawk is controlled using a hand-held terminal, and it can hover at high altitudes or just inches off the ground.
