U.S. Army Unveils working hoverbike drone
The original blueprints for the technology were developed by a company based in the United Kingdom called Malloy Aeronautics. Their plan was to design a single-seater, turbofan-powered quadrocopter which would allow the user to fly in the air while steering the vehicle in a very similar way to a motorbike. The US military became very interested in the development of these bikes in 2015 and purchased the patents that would allow them to develop an unmanned version of Malloy Aeronautics’ design for use in combat zones.
The development of this new form of the military vehicle took almost two years to complete, but now the US Department of Defence now believe that have created a fully working unmanned quadcopter drone. They have dubbed this new piece of the highly impressive military as the Joint Tactical Aerial Resupply Vehicle (JTARV). According to official reports, the drone is capable of carrying 300 pounds, but it is hoped with improvements that new JTARVs will be able to carry loads as heavy as 800 pounds across distances of around 125 miles.
According to Tim Vong, who works in the field of developing new military hardware, this technology is potentially revolutionizing. “Anywhere on the battlefield, Soldiers can potentially get resupplied in less than 30 minutes, ” he said. He also said that there were further applications to this futuristic technology. He said that he hoped the JTARV could be integrated with intelligent navigation and mission planning and play a huge role in logistically combat and intelligence gathering missions in the future.
If the technology is everything that Vong and the Department of Defence claim it to be, then it looks as though it might be a real game changer for the US Military.
