Underwater Drone

Researchers at the Office of Naval Research (ONR) and Rutgers University have unveiled Naviator, the world’s first amphibious drone ever created, with the ability to both fly in the air and swim underwater, using a series of sensors to move. Javier Diez, a professor in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Rutgers, said: “Mines are probably the biggest problem for the Navy. They need to map where mines are. Now there are a lot of false positives. This could be a better technology to rapidly investigate these potential threats. They have a number of applications we’ve been talking about. You can do ship inspections. You can deploy from the bridge and quickly be able to make the decision on whether to call a repairman or not. If you have an oil spill you can use this to see how far and how deep the spill goes.” Click here to view the first image in today’s viral picture gallery.
