WASHINGTON - Winner of the 2015 POPULAR SCIENCE ‘Best of What’s New Award,’ the NRL developed Close-in Covert Autonomous Disposable Aircraft (CICADA) is a low-cost, GPS-guided micro disposable air vehicle designed for launch from manned or unmanned aircraft, balloons, or precision guided munitions. Essentially a flying printed circuit board, the micro-unmanned glider can be equipped with mission specific sensors and has an integrated rate gyroscope and GPS receiver for navigation and flight control of the vehicle.
