The WORLD'S FIRST Autonomous Hybrid UUV/UAV Drone!!!
The WORLD'S FIRST Autonomous Hybrid UUV/UAV Drone!!!

Welcome to SubMurres

 

InnoCorp, LLC announces SubMurres--its revolutionary, unrivaled unmanned underwater vehicle (UUV), unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) drone—transitioning from water to air to land without   any individual or multiple deployments, fission of elements, (as in rockets), or complicated maneuvering. It’s here—what the top tech companies and governments around the world are vigorously seeking! Like the Murres, a unique seabird which can circumnavigate in the air and in water, SubMurres does both in unprecedented fashion.  SubMurres has all the key features of a submarine, including complete marine functionality, communication tower with periscope for panoramic viewing of above-water landscape, dual propulsion blades, fully-articulated rotors that emerge as needed, sensors, and more. But it doesn’t end there.

 

The dual submarine aircraft moves ubiquitously from water to air. As a submarine, Submurres glide silently underwater performing its mission as it surfaces. Once on the water surface its flight system is engaged and its four rotors emerge from their compartments as vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) is initiated. Once airborne, there is no expulsion of parts. SubMurres simply flies unfettered, with all components intact. Its landing apparatus allow it to settle on terrain, and its second camera system allows it to fully capture surroundings. From land, it can be directly re-dispatched to water. No need to redeploy or to be picked up by another carrier aircraft, unlike any of the chief aeronautic industry or Navy-funded university’s latest submersive drone models!

 

SubMurres, can return to the water without redeployment from another submarine or any other transport vehicle. Unlike other drones in use today, the device is controlled by command rather than by a thin tethered wire or other medium.

 

SubMurres is a diesel/battery powered vehicle. It has a main diesel engine, a generator, and a battery bank. The diesels engine can either power the vehicle or run the generator that recharges the battery bank. 

As a diesel/battery powered UUV/UAV, SubMurres surfaces to run its diesel engine to charge the batteries. Once fully charged, SubMurres can head underwater using the battery-powered electric motors to drive its thrusters, sensors, cameras, and related equipment. While diesel/battery powered submarines are nothing new, InnoCorp is the first to implement this technology in a UUV/UAV drone, thereby significantly extending its operational capacity.

 

“There is nothing in the world like SubMurres! There is nothing like this anywhere,” says InnoCorp CEO, Jae Lee.  Even the innovative industry moguls like Boeing and its latest hailed "flying submarine" requires additional aircraft to carry it, as shared in its video release. Boeing’s drone and many others like it currently being used or in deveolopment are not autonomous vehicles —unlike what we’ve developed. What we’ve got is a total game-changer.”

 

Attached are photographs of this revolutionary drone. With its sleek aerodynamic design, seen from several angles as it transforms from submarine to boat, to helicoptor and to an airplane. SubMurres is truly not one vehicle but four-- having complete but separately integrated systems that allow it to rotate to any of those functions.

 

InnoCorp LLC is also developing a tricopter version of SubMurres, called TriMurres, which will be faster, more maneuverable, and can carry and deliver payloads on land and underwater.

 

SubMurres has stunning, game-changing implications for military operations; for drilling; for subsurface inspections (such as bridge footings and piers); for gaming and film-making; for the toy industry, and more. SubMurres brings the full meaning of autonomous vehicles to life.

Drones – Technology's New Wild, Wild West

Things move so fast in the tech space, that the only way to be able to keep up tomorrow is to get ahead today.

The commercial drones space is projected to become a multi-billion dollar industry over the next ten years. Business Insider Intelligence published a report in January, 2014 that predicts there will be $98.2 billion in total cumulative drone spending over the next 10 years, with$11.8 billion of that spending falling into in the commercial space.

Between now and 2024, there is (if you will excuse the pun) a lot of ground to cover. The issues surrounding the relationship of drones to personal privacy/security become more complicated by the day and the FAA is going to have their hands full trying to decide who owns the air.

Until the dust settles, the commercial drones industry is the new wild west of technology; there is a lot of money to be made, unclaimed territory to be mapped, and there are hardly any rules.

Out of the box thinking -- Nature Inspired Vehicles

Drone developers from around the globe are taking inspiration from nature for the latest generations of automated aerial vehicles.

Researchers are faced with challenging problems of navigating tight environments, whether in urban environments, or underground. A total of 14 research teams have turned to nature for inspiration to develop superior capabilities in drones.

Drones are now capable of picking up and delivering packages, which requires precise flight control and navigation. Bats are well-equipped for flying in and out of tight spaces. Vehicles with similar capabilities could be used in small areas that are unsafe for human occupation. One example could be in damaged nuclear power plants, like the one at Fukushima, Japan.

Automated aerial vehicles that flock together like birds, could allow rescue workers a network of airborne cameras to search for victims of disasters.

"Flying animals can be found everywhere in our cities. From scavenging pigeons to alcohol-sniffing fruit flies that make precision landings on our wine glasses, these animals have quickly learned how to control their flight through urban environments to exploit our resources," David Lentink of Stanford University, guest editor of the journal issue announcing the research, said. "To enable our drones to fly equally well in wind and clutter, we need to solve several flight control challenges during all flight phases: take-off, cruising, and landing," Lentink explained in a press release announcing the multiple research projects.

Harvard University researchers developed a fully-functional drone aircraft that is just the size of a penny. This would allow reconnaissance and surveillance in the tightest of spaces. For military purposes, this tiny unarmed aerial vehicle (UAV) would be nearly impossible to detect or target. This new drone could also aid biologists, in their study of flight patterns and behaviors of insects.

Wind and other weather conditions could prove hazardous for the drones. Many of the new designs will not be fully practical until they are able to withstand wind and heavy rains. One group of researchers is looking at the hawk moth for design ideas that would allow the automated vehicles to withstand such forces.

The flying squirrel was the inspiration for the jumpglider, a small drone which combines a spring-loaded launcher with an aerodynamic body to obtain flight at a small cost in energy.  

Investigation of natural sources as inspiration for new generations of drones was profiled in a special issue of the journal Bioinspiration and Biomimetics. This edition focuses on advances in flight control methods inspired by nature.
