Meet Cyro, The US Navy’s 170 Pound Underwater Jellyfish Drone

Meet Cyro, the Virginia Tech College of Engineering underwater life-like jellyfish drone in development for US Navy surveillance.  The jellyfish drone isn’t designed as an extremely efficient method of hydrodynamic propulsion, but rather it is meant for ‘natural stealth advantage’ allowing subversive access otherwise unattainable by traditional engineering.  This current version of the Cyro can last three to four hours in motion with its rechargeable nickel metal hydride battery.

    How much of the tax payers money did that cost?

    • gary

      they don’t care how much it cost us, it’s not their money. It’s easy to spend other peoples money

  • James Fontana

    How long before Homeland security wants to put these things in the Great Lakes and any sizable lake in the country?

      jelly fish in fresh water..? nobody will buy it.. now that this article is out, they couldnt deploy it in fresh water. everyone would know… its a fake!

      • James Fontana

        For fresh water they will make it look like something else.

          a big clump of weeds/algae?

          • James Fontana

            Not algae because Obama thinks he can harvest that and make an alternative fuel, but weeds ir tree stumps would work

          • saber86

            floating tree stumps ? still dont think those egg heads that come up with this stuff are as smart as they think they are…

      • CaptTurbo

        Liberals are dumb enough to buy anything except … they won’t pay for it we will.

        • saber86

          i agree.. total waste of money.

    “This current version of the Cyro can last three to four hours in motion” this is a problem and needs more work to improve underwater proficiency.

  • GT Horvat

    Huh?? Why don’t they build one that looks and acts like a fish. Remember Mr. Limpet?
    That would make a lot more sense and it could get around a lot faster. Well; until a bigger fish got hungry anyway.

    ?? Clandestine surveillance in harbors ?? ( unfriendly of course ? )

    When your children seem to be stung by an apparent jellyfish, in might be something else and they might have got an injection of something for any kind of purpose the government might have.
