Us company Aurora Flight Science in the next year will experience a pseudo solar energy.
As reported on the website of the developers, the UAV Odysseus will be equipped with solar panels and will be able to gain a fairly high altitude, say the designers.
It is assumed that the UAV will be primarily to collect data about the Earth’s climate and weather. However, it’s a military interest: Odysseus can be used as a pseudo intelligence.
In the field of view of the military Odysseus came from his ability to stay in the air for several months. To ensure such an impressive duration of flight, the drone assembled from very lightweight materials, and has supplied solar cells.
In addition, the pseudo can lift loads weighing up to 25 kg, which makes possible its use for a wide range of tasks.
Testing Odysseus is scheduled for spring 2019.
