INDUSTRIAL DAILY from reports collaboration between Cranfield University and BAE Systems.

The YouTube clip and the link in this blog explain in greater detail the enormous military potential in this engineering marvel.

Potentially, the battlefield of the future could be a hive of UAVs released on a target. Unlike the clip above the latest development has both fixed wing capacity and rotary. Depending on the combat scenario, the UAV in rotary mode can take off and land vertically, and fix wing mode allows enhanced speed and distance.

Watch the latest video and read the complete article from Thomasnet:
