Defense Tech: Robotic Frisbees of Death


Defense Tech: Robotic Frisbees of Death: “Robotic Frisbees of Death

It ain’t easy, picking out evil-doers in the urban canyons of the Middle East; there are so many places to hide. Taking ’em out can be even harder, what with all those noncombatants hanging nearby. But the Air Force thinks it might have an answer to this most vexing problem in counter-insurgency: frisbees.

The Air Force recently tapped Triton Systems, out of Chelmsford, Mass, to develop such a ‘Modular Disc-Wing Urban Cruise Munition.’

‘The 3-D maneuverability of the Frisbee-UAV [unammned aerial vehicle] will provide revolutionary tactical access and lethality against hostiles hiding in upper story locations and/or defiladed behind obstacles,’ the company promises.”
