The Future of Flight: Marines Test Out 3-D Printed Unmanned Aerial Systems

Posted October 12, 2017

U.S Marines with 2nd Marine Division recently tested remote controlled craft made through additive manufacturing, or 3-D printing, at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. The unmanned aerial system (UAS) vehicle are designed to cater to individual missions based on distance, endurance, and carrying capacity needs. By creating a system that is easier to set up and more cost effective than traditional UAS, the U.S. Army Research Laboratory hopes to revolutionize the way troops conduct assignments.
