from Yahoo!

While flying over an airfield in Alaska last summer, an Air Force F-16 traveling 430 miles per hour casually launched a swarm of miniature drones directly from its flare dispenser. Measuring no bigger than an iPhone 6 Plus and weighing roughly one pound, these tiny drones (referred to as Perdix) exited the host fighter jet via small canisters outfitted with parachutes.
