Yes, those genius aerospace engineers at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory in Washington D.C. are at it again. They’ve invented a flying drone can fly 60mph in the air AND dive into the water and swim 11mph underwater like a submarine!
This amphibious sea drone has been dubbed “The Flimmer“, short for flying-swimmer. It acts as a Sonobuoy, “a sonar-carrying buoy dropped from planes to scan area for submarines,” among other things.
The Flimmer is “affordably expendable” and was developed by a team led by Dr. Dan Edwards, Tactical Electronic Warfare specialist at the U.S. Naval Research Labs. Contact Dr. Dan: firstname.lastname@example.org
