DRS’ Neptune micro-UAV is pretty damn cool. It’s launched from the back of a ship, or where ever you might happen to have carried it’s portable catapult and can glide to a parachute-assisted landing on water or land where it can be picked up by waiting forces. It only takes two people to launch and control the airplane using a laptop-style control console. The bat-winged UAV can transmit video images from up to 50-nautical miles away from controllers.
