(3DPrintingIndustry)  Research from California’s Naval Postgraduate School is exploring the use of 3D printing to develop glider delivery systems for the U.S. Marines. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is also using 3D printing to develop the TERN military drone. The military aerial vehicle is manufactured by Northrop Gunman and will be capable of flying both vertically and horizontally.
The latest research at the Naval Postgraduate School was conducted by Chaz R. Henderson. His research into 3D printing, drones and aerial delivery systems may benefit corporations like Amazon who are planning on how to contend with the future mega-cities and managing logistics within densely populated areas. This is in addition to the obvious military application.
