CRACUNS - Innovative UAV Launches from Underwater for Aerial Missions
Added Mar 22, 2016 | Rate View top rated
Researchers at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) have developed an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) that can stay on station beneath the water, then launch into the air to perform a variety of missions. The Corrosion Resistant Aerial Covert Unmanned Nautical System (CRACUNS) is a submersible UAV that can be launched from a fixed position underwater, or from an unmanned underwater vehicle (UUV). The most innovative feature of CRACUNS is that it can remain at and launch from a significant depth without needing structural metal parts or machined surfaces.
