AU­TONOMOUS HE­LI­COPTERS PA­TROLLING THE COASTS

World of Knowledge (Australia) - - World Events -

These au­tonomous air­borne drones are set to re­place pa­trol boats, he­li­copters and bor­der fences in the fu­ture. They use elec­tro­mag­netic shock­waves, quick-hard­en­ing poly­mer foam and py­rotech­nics to stop and slow both boats and land-based ve­hi­cles. AEROCEPTOR will also be used to stop ter­ror­ists, drugs and weapons smug­glers – as well as bat­tle peo­ple traf­fick­ers. It’s not yet been ex­plained ex­actly how the tech­nol­ogy will be de­ployed. The pro­ject’s test phase ended in May this year.
