Army tries to shrink satellite AND booster

The US Army is eyeing nanosatellites costing $300K-$1M for a variety of missions. Well, I've been advocating that for years. What surprised me here is how they are trying to shrink the launch vehicle down to a "nanomissile" which would be the smallest, cheapest orbital launcher ever built. I'll be very interested to see firm specs on this critter.
