The US Navy has completed the latest in a series of sea trials to work out the bugs of recovering NASA’s Orion space capsule after its end-of-mission splashdown. The San Antonio-class amphibious transport dock USS Anchorage (LPD 23) completed Underway Recovery Test-6 (URT-6) on January 23, which involved the launch and recovery by special boat teams and Navy divers of a floating mock-up of the spacecraft under a variety of sea conditions, at night as well as daytime.
It is set to be the drone that can land anywhere, and turn any US Navy ship into an aircraft carrier.
Northrop Grumman has revealed its flying-wing tailsitter drone will take to the air in 2018 – and does not need a runway.
Instead, it simply lands on its tail – a design first tested in the 1950s.
