Innovative Cracuns UAV Can Launch from Underwater And in Air


Scientists at Johns Hopkins University have developed a new UAV named “CRACUNS” that can stay on station beneath the water, then launch into the air to complete different 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.
