(ECNMag) The U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command has created a process for converting Soldier mission needs into a 3D printed On-Demand Small Unmanned Aircraft System, or ODSUAS. Researchers said they felt the combination of 3D printing and UAVs was a natural technology solution.
The team spent many hours flight testing and verifying the designs and to make sure everything was going to work the way they expected. Based on feedback from Army leaders, his team hopes to work on low noise, long standoff distance, heavier payload capacity and better agility.
