The future of the unmanned aircraft industry is slowly taking shape.
We’ve seen several major advancements in the last few years, including the creation of drones that can fly for days without a single maintenance cycle, and drones that are able to fly at speeds up to 1,200mph (2,100km/h).
However, these drones are still only able to operate for short periods of time.
In an effort to improve this, two teams at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have been developing the world’s first drone capable of flying for longer periods of the day.
The unmanned aircraft is called the mini submarine, and is the result of years of research at MIT.
MIT has developed a new generation of mini submersibles, called the Advanced Nanoparticles Advanced Submarine Vehicle (ANTASV).
The device is the first of its kind, and the first one designed for a wider range of tasks.
The device, which can be built in a matter of days, can be used to carry up to 12 kilograms of payload and is capable of diving down to a depth of up to 10 metres (33 feet) under water.
It is able to carry out tasks such as monitoring seismic activity and mapping ocean floor contours.
It also has the ability to carry passengers in submersible pods.
The team says the device will be able to be used for a variety of tasks, ranging from navigation to surface mining.
The new device can operate in the low to the mid-frequency range, which is critical for long-term missions.
The MIT team said the new technology can operate at a speed of 1,000km/hr (620mph), which is much faster than any other drone currently in use.
The devices can also take off and land vertically, making it ideal for surface mining, underwater survey, and other tasks.
There are currently no drones on the market that can perform these tasks at such a high rate, but the team hopes the development will help them improve on their current technology.
The mini sub is also able to dive deeper than any drone currently on the shelf, allowing it to perform some tasks that are traditionally not possible with drones.
The company is currently working on developing a version that can take off vertically.
“The technology that we are working on with the nano submarine is the next generation of a submersibility technology that is still in development,” said Professor Thomas Reis, one of the researchers involved in the research.
“Its the future of long-range unmanned aircraft.”
In order to make the new submersibly capable, the team is working with a team of MIT students.
“We are working with MIT students to create the first submersively autonomous drone that can navigate underwater and also land vertically,” said the project’s chief technology officer, Rohan Jain.
The researchers hope to start testing the sub in the coming months.
The nano submarine will allow the scientists to explore underwater areas, such as underwater cities and mines.
The Nano Submersible is expected to have a range of up 30 kilometres (18 miles) and a top speed of up a whopping 1,600km/hour (622mph).
The submersiblog is expected in the first half of 2021.
It has already been tested underwater, but its underwater capabilities are yet to be tested in the water.
“At this point, we are focused on testing the Nano Submeribles ability to land and dive underwater, which will be a key element in developing the technology for the long-haul operation,” said Reis.
“This technology will be crucial for the future success of unmanned aircraft in remote, inaccessible, and challenging environments.”
