About the book

This book will report the latest development and trends in the micro air vehicles, flow over the micro air vehicles, micro air vehicle wing aerodynamics, power systems of these vehicles such as fuel-cell and lithium battery, manufacturing processes and material types for micro air vehicles, applications for environmental monitoring with micro air vehicles, and act and legislation in utilizing of micro air vehicles. It will focus particularly on: (1) a review and brief information types of Micro Air Vehicles, (2) Aerodynamics of MAVs, (3) Power Systems for MAVs, (4) Material Selection and Fabrication of MAVs, (5) MAV Applications for Environmental Monitoring and (6) Act and Legislation for MAVs. The contributors to each chapter will be scientists and engineers with strong expertise in their respective fields. As a whole, the studies presented here will reveal important new directions toward the realization of applications of MAV. We hope that this book will be useful to scientists and engineers working in this important area.
