As the US military discovers just how useful drones can be, it’s eager to keep them flying as long as can be, and the US Office of Naval Research now has a drone that can fly for two whole days. The Ion Tiger, an experimental surveillance plane that uses a hydrogen fuel cell as its power source, flew for a record 26 hours using pressurized hydrogen back in 2009, but late last month it managed a full 48 hours and one minute thanks to a new cryogenic storage tank filled with liquid hydrogen. That’s not the only way to keep lightweight aircraft flying for lengthy periods, as laser beams and solar panels have recently shown, but the hydrogen could allow planes to fly further afield and at more flexible hours of the day than the other…
The US Navy has officially introduced unmanned aircraft along with eight newly manned helicopters into its squadron, making it the latest military branch after the Army and the Air Force to embrace the drone. Indeed, ten of the 18 aircraft to be deployed are Fire Scout MQ-8Bs, an unmanned chopper the Navy wishes to operate from combat ships set in the Pacific in about a year. Built to track targets, the Fire Scout lets troops see what’s happening over potentially dangerous areas, allowing them to regroup and rearm if necessary. The drone isn’t without its fair share of detractors of course, especially after the occasional communication failure, but here’s hoping that these Linux-operated copters will remain well within human control.

In the wake of budget cuts, the US Navy is turning to older technology in the war on drugs. As the Associated Press reports, last week the Navy began testing two new tools to monitor and capture drug smugglers in the Caribbean: the blimp-like aerostat, which has previously been used for surveillance in Iraq and Afghanistan as well to monitor the US-Mexico border, and a drone that’s launched from the deck of a ship by hand. While both are relatively older technology, they’ve been outfitted with radar, cameras, and sensors that reportedly expand a ship’s radar range from five miles to around 50 miles.
“Being able to see them and watch what they are doing even before we get there is going to give us an edge,” Chief Chris Sinclair told the A…
Lasers, specifically those that set watercrafts ablaze and blaze incoming missiles, have long been on the Navy’s mind. Today, the Office of Naval Research exposed its newest energy weapon yearning: vehicle-mounted lasers that shoot down drones. Dubbed Ground-Based Air Defense Directed Energy On-The-Move, the task is offering exclusive clothing up until $ 400,000 each to establish such a system that blasts at complete power for 120 seconds and juices back up to 80 percent after a 20 minute fee. The beam is required to pack a punch of at least 25 kilowatts, while the capability to ratchet up to 50 kilowatts is optional. Provided that kind of power, Wired points out that making such a solution fit in a Humvee is going to be a task– especially when the Navy states it can’t consider additional info than 2,000 pounds and need to fit entirely within a vehicle’s cargo area. Have blueprints for a jeep-mountable laser squirreled away in your basement hobby shop? You’ll have to send your application in by 2 PM on April 26th to qualify for the federal money.

The United States Navy is looking to establish a swarm of odor-sniffing robots to help put together and load some of its most harmful weaponry. As Wired reports, these semi-automated robots would act nearly like mechanized ants, with “innovator” and “follower” bots loading 1,000-pound bombs into tight spaces aboard carrier. A human-controlled innovator robotic would lead the procession, with its automated followers tracking behind.
The key ingredient to the Navy’s proposal is an as-yet unknown chemical that could possibly act as a pheromone. When this chemical is identified, the Navy would require a system capable of embedding and reading records within the pheromone, which would be shared by the lead robotic. The followers would should have the ability to pick …
Advances in unmanned military tools and cars have begun leaps and bounds, but, till now, we have not seen a tool heating drone operating in the seas. A recent test taking component offshore near Maryland saw numerous missiles launched from a brand-new remote-controlled inflatable-hulled ship. While the Navy has utilized drones prior to for mine clearing and other protective tasks, the small boat (similar to that visualized above) is the very first experiment to include true offensive capabilities. The almost zodiac-like craft has been a recurring project over recent years, and includes a fully automated system which the Navy calls a “Accuracy Involvement Module” which makes use of an Mk-49 mounting with a twin missile launcher made by Rafael. The hope is that such automobiles can patrol the coastline, or function as a very first defense against buccaneers, and other such small, fast-moving seafaring hazards. If you wish to catch it in action, head past the break for the video, but do not be tricked. While it may appear like a series of misses, the Navy claims this is just a trick of the camera angle, with all 6 missiles obviously making contact.

Disagreement between passionate Windows and Mac OS diehards have caused many a kerfuffle on the Interwebs. When it comes to the tactical control system of the US Navy’s autonomous vertical take-off-and-landing craft, however, the military branch is putting its money on a different operating system. The Navy just awarded a contract worth nearly $ 28 million to Raytheon Intelligence and Information Systems to transition its VTOL drones to using its own flavor of good, old Linux. Eventually, the Navy plans to have 168 Northrop Grumman MQ-8B Navy Fire Scout drones rocking the OS as part of its fleet. The Register reports that the move was likely made for security reasons following a malware attack on the Air Force’s Windows-based drone system last year. Add Samsung’s recent inclusion into the Platinum ranks of Linux’s core supporters and you really can’t blame fans of the operating system if they decide to wear shades while pondering its future.
