drone in the RBB. The second one comes from me and me......based on squids.
Drones and Sleds
Aztecnology GCR-23M Crab
A Tracked Drone based on a chassis the size of a large bread box, The Crab is
designed for under water snooping and exploration, it is usable under water
and above. It is capable of navigating slopes of 45° in climb mode. Fully
electric-powered, it can operate in mobile mode for four hours on a standard
charge, and will plug it's self in at a handy power point at the area of
surveillance. In stationary mode sensor can operate for 24hrs on a full
charge. Standard sensors, active and passive sonar are included with the
package, and enhanced sensor can be added as an upgrade.
Cyberspace Designs Squid
The Squid is the revolutionary new design from Cyberspace, uses complex myomer
muscle bundles, to simulate the flexible bodies of the Squids and octopuses.
It is controlled by a small Chip in it's Main body shell, All movement is
stimulated by Electrical impulses from a Hi Power Battery. The actual squid is
about 1m long and .3m in diameter, However when it needs to it can compress
itself to .15m diameter which all so puts the length up to 4m. The Squid is
covered by similar skin to that of a shark, to sonar and most other forms of
detection it looks like a fish. Upgrades can be obtained from Cyberspace.
>This thing is amazing, It is the latest piece of drone tech (for the tech
heads), gives very little signature, but it relies purely on stealth and
sensors, It has no Offensive/Defensive capabilities.
>I have heard that Cyberspace offer at some ridiculous price to set the skin
up to discharge the battery *ZAP!*, but take note that this thing will only
take the mod.'s made specifically for it, so that means no mount machine guns.
Okay That is it for the moment I haven't had much time to do much lately.
Comments would be nice, new designs nicer and I am expecting a flame about
the squid :) .
Gurth, What are the other mailing lists you mentioned? and also who are the
other Brits here?
Everyone, Who is actually doing this Ocean thing, cos I Know that Erik J sent
out a load of those wave books out, so where those for your own use or to have
a look to see what you could do for this book?
