I think Gordon made the purpose of the thread abundantly clear.
MAV means micro air vehicle and much of the research had been directed towards various competitions or at least specifications such as those put forward by DARPA (I think it was them). But at the end of the day anything that is micro and flies could be considered a MAV.
However I would say that MAVs are really micro models with a purpose or a mission, the purpose may vary but generally it will be surveillance based.
