The Pentagon plans to create "soluble" UAVs

The Pentagon’s Military Development Agency (DARPA) has become interested in the possibility of creating UAVs capable of disappearing after completing the mission, reports Rossiyskaya Gazeta with reference to the resource Defense Systems.

“The project is called ICARUS, and it involves the creation of UAVs that will be able to deliver the necessary cargo and equipment to the soldiers of special operations units using GPS coordinates. At the same time, the requirements for the accuracy of the approach are quite tough - the spread must be no more than 9,7 meters. Each unit will be able to take on board up to 1,4 a kilogram of cargo and the task of the fighters is only to extract the parcel. Everything else the BLAH should do by itself, ”writes the publication.

The agency stressed that “by“ disappearance ”is meant not a disguise or return of the drone to the starting point, but physical disappearance”. So far, however, it is unclear how this will be done technically. The Pentagon "insists that it was not an explosion (it can unmask the position of the unit) and not an acid that could harm the fighters," the resource notes.

Most likely, the devices will simply dissolve. DARPA already 3 year engaged in the development of the so-called soluble electronics. “This program involves the creation of electronic circuits and components that, if necessary, could be eaten, dissolved in a glass of water, or flushed down the toilet. The program involves the American company IBM and the University of Iowa, ”explains the publication.

According to the resource "on the development of" soluble "UAVs, the Pentagon gives 26 months." However, so far, as far as the publication is aware, no contract has yet been concluded on this subject with any company.

        I think the goal is to dissolve the money allocated for this development.
        Like scientists overfulfilled the plan, the problem is solved ahead of schedule!
        UAVs dissolved before the scheduled time! Before departure, moreover, before assembly !!!

    That is, if the drone gets caught in rain or snow, it won’t even reach the target? And if there is a capsule on it to start the process of extinction, will its accidental damage turn out to be the same? And extracting this capsule will make the drone common?
    That's what the child would not amuse. With their dough, we already have to test the ambiguous atmosphere-space planes, and they are engaged in toys.

    And I heard that the Americans have long been developing, and quite successfully, ghost tanks.
    -For what?
    - Here the crew left for a combat mission in civilian clothes. A shot was fired. Quickly from the ghost tank - out. This tank was quickly eaten, and they themselves, having a tourist visa, were visiting local attractions.
    The horror is that they are already developing such "soluble-edible" planes and missiles.

      UAVs arrived, brought equipment by local fighters for what nibut, with the help of which they killed an important person, blew up an important object, and so on. And no evidence of US interference. The UAV will obviously be tiny, fly low, quietly, at night, and if that completely self-destructs without any identifiable residues. And the cargo is naturally without marking, and the weapons of all possible manufacturers in bulk. You think why the United States bought so many Soviet weapons? wink

    We have already written above: "I do not ask - why, I ask, why the hell?"

    From the series as a “pen for space” - millions to the wind. And ours as they wrote in pencil, and they write.

    And I heard that the Americans have long been developing, and quite successfully, ghost tanks.
    -For what?
    - Here the crew left for a combat mission in civilian clothes. A shot was fired. Quickly from the ghost tank - out. This tank was quickly eaten, and they themselves, having a tourist visa, were visiting local attractions.
    The horror is that they are already developing such soluble-edible airplanes and rockets.

    So we have such developments already run in the second year, in the Donbass now and then ghost tanks rode as much as entire divisions then bam and no, I am silent about several airborne brigades.
    So the Americans were late again.
