Underwater Cracun Drone

Under Water Cracun Drone

The technological advancement and innovation of aerial and underwater drones helped developed the ULTIMATE drone. Applied Physics Lab (APL) at Johns Hopkins University developed the CRACUNS (Corrosion Resistant Aerial Covert Unmanned Nautical System) UAV. This underwater Cracun drone can sit and wait underwater for a long period of time and then emerge out of the water to take flight whenever it needs to.

To nurture the idea of the UAV’s flexibility through both air and water, APL teamed up with the Research and Exploratory Development Department in the same university. This partnership helped fulfill the extremely difficult challenge of making a stable and efficient drone. The fact that this drone will likely be used in extreme military conditions, researchers needed to incorporate the most innovative manufacturing technologies and super advanced fabrication techniques. As a result, they were able to form a not too expensive, a lightweight, and complex drone that will change the surveillance industry.

The CRACUNS also needed to pass tests to withstand corrosion in salt water and remain operating underwater uninterrupted. To avoid possible complications, they enclosed most of the parts (like the motor) to keep it dry with heavy-duty protective coatings. After a couple of months of testing, the CRACUNS has functioned as expected and is now on its way to becoming a game changer in military operations.
