by Stephen BrownMarch 29, 2016
The U.S. Navy’s ‘stealth drone’ boat set to hunt for pirates and go undercover around the world.
Main Features:
They are 35ft long and can operate for 24 hours a day.
They can travel at 60mph and have a range of 600 nautical miles.
They are able to loiter at low speeds for 10 days without needing to refuel.
The drones are powered by two 500 horsepower water jets and boast £650,000 giroscopic HD cameras.
They can be decked out with a high powered fire hose, a cannon that fires nets to foul propellers and a 50 calibre gun.
They use infrared cameras to see in the dark and they can identify chemical matter and underwater mines.
The most expensive model costs £2 million.
They are remote controlled so can operate without a crew.
