The US Navy has just unveiled a new drone that looks exactly like a shark! It’s five-feet long, weighs almost 100-pounds, and is designed to swim and look just like a real fish (or shark). The drone was designed by Advanced Systems Group at Boston Engineering and is called ‘GhostSwimmer’. The next time you think you see a shark swimming on the surface, you may want to look just a little bit closer.
DECEMBER 11, 2014: Footage of the U.S. Navy Ghost Swimmer vehicle developed by the Chief of Naval Operations’ Rapid Innovation Cell project Silent NEMO undergoes testing during an event at Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek – Fort Story, Virginia. Project Silent NEMO is an experiment to explore the possible uses for a biomimetic device developed by the United States Navy Office of Naval Research.
