USN buys COTS drone for long-range ship-to-ship and ship-to-shore cargo transport
Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division (NAWCAD) has procured a commercially available off-the-shelf (COTS) to demonstrate long-range naval ship-to-ship and ship-to-shore cargo transport.
The Blue Water Maritime Logistics UAS will be used to deliver electronics parts or assemblies that weigh less than 50 pounds to warships.
NAWCAD will future improve on the drone by having folding wings for better handling and ship storage, a dual propulsion system that runs on both electricity and JP-5.
