US Navy’s solar drone flies from and lands on water
The new age, high tech Aqua-Quad developed by Dr. Kevin Jones and his team at Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, California, is not an ordinary drone. It can take off from the ocean or any other body of water, and it comes back to land on water again till it’s collected. So far, drones are dropped from aircrafts or fly from the ground, but the new system flies straight from water. Scientists say that it will soon replace the sonobuoys, which are used to hunt submarines.
