We have observed quadcopters and bots configured to take a flight and stroll (or move), and one which can swim and also walk. The Naviator drone, however, is equally skilled at soaring and swimming submerged. It is a drone flies and swims underwater.
Prof . Javier Diez and a number of his trainees have been focusing on the Naviator for a long time, but it took off earlier when they acquired a financial assistance for the project from a Government agency from the United States’ Office of Naval Research (ONR), who were evidently highly pleased by the prototype.
The agency desires to someday make use of this kind of a drone to search for submerged mines and opponents as well as examine underwater buildings like those in piers, sea bridges and oil platforms.
