Noua drona cu 24 de motoare dezvoltata de DARPA:


DARPA gives the world a peek at its strange new 24-motor drone

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency — or DARPA — just launched a one-fifth-scale model of its LightningStrike aircraft for the first time.

Built by Aurora Flight Science, the ‘Subscale LightningStrike’ relies on 24 fans to propel the 325 pound scale model and enable vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL). Not shown in the video, but planned on the full-sized version, is the ability for these propellers to rotate to provide thrust in addition to assisting in take-off and landing.

So. Much. Tech.

Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.

The full-sized LightiningStrike, once completed, is said to be capable of speeds of 400 knots (about 460 mph) while carrying several thousand pounds of cargo (without a pilot) and running entirely on electric power.

Aurora says it’ll spend the next year working on perfecting the prototype before launching the full-sized version as soon as 2018.
