Drone can launch from underwater. Release the CRACUN! (pronounced Kraken)

This will undoubtedly be a new type of Modern Combat weaponry. Submersible Drones that can stay submersed at a depth of hundreds of feet for months at a time before launching out of the water while being nearly undetectable. This is awesome, yet eerily frightful at the same time! Its almost the perfect weapon.

Researchers at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory in Laurel, Maryland, have developed an innovative unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) that can stay on station beneath the water, then launch into the air to perform a variety of missions.




The Corrosion Resistant Aerial Covert Unmanned Nautical System - or CRACUNS - is a submersible UAV that can be launched from a fixed position underwater, or from an unmanned underwater vehicle (UUV). A team from APL's Force Projection Sector worked with fabrication experts in the Research and Exploratory Development Department to create a new type of unmanned vehicle that can operate effectively in two very different arenas: air and water.
