Abstract : "Technology,which has attracted the interest of engineers and scientists in recent times, is the development of micro-unmanned air vehicles (MAVs), with the largest linear dimension no greater than 15 cm. MAVs are a great challenge to scientists and technologists. Current technology is underway to meet the design and development of MAV. So in this paper, a literature survey of various emerging technologies in aerodynamics, propulsion, structures, controls, navigation, communication, and payloads for MAVs, is presented. "
