It is impressive the progress that currently exists in the development of drones, as time passes we know new and impressive applications because it is not enough to fly, now also part of complex tasks ranging from rescue and exploration, tributes, to landfills and hurricane hunting.
What we are clear is that this type of aircraft will be present in more and more disciplines, being responsible for carrying out missions that we would never have imagined before. Within these disciplines it's an important participation in the military field, and now know a drone that could even be a dangerous underground mine.
CRACUNS: the drone that emerges from the sea
Under development at Johns Hopkins, is as we know now CRACUNS (Corrosion Resistant Aerial Covert Unmanned Nautical System), an interesting project that brings a drone which includes printed pieces 3D, which makes their cost is very low, and that one of its objectives is to serve as mine in the sea, so it can explode without any remorse.
Another important element is that most of your body is coated to make it waterproof, plus materials are anti-corrosive, so you can expect under the sea for a period of up to two months without suffering any Of damage.
This drone has been created under the specifications Pentagon of the United States, so their goal is to completely military, as it could serve as a device attack, defense or company name to the soldiers, where his biggest advantage is that it can be installed In shores or remote places and activated remotely, in addition to working perfectly in air and water.
Its applications can be very varied, from explosive - laden device recognition by a camera or sensors, communication equipment, even equipped with guns for the attack.
