First 3D-Printed Plane Goes Through Test Flight!

The world’s first 3D printed plane made it to the skies. It is called Eosint P730 and is made by nylon laser sintering using a 3D-objects printer made up by students of the Southampton University. It basically is an unmanned aerospace vehicle (UAV).

The Eosint is a duplicate of the SULSA -the distinctive aircraft was used during the World War 2, which made it the number one contender for the Eosint to take form.

Geocopter Presents First Unmanned Helicopter

The GC-201 from Geocopter allows the US military to use unmanned helicopters for stealth missions. Designed and built like a normal helicopter, the GC-201 features a twin gas turbine engine propulsion system, lightweight carbon fiber fuselage and full automatic takeoff, mission, and landing capabilities.

It can cruise at 46MPH and can fly as high as 6,500 feet. The GC-201 carries a 66 pound sensor payload that brings its original weight to nearly 200 pounds. With the sensor payload attached, the helicopter can remain in flight only for about three hours, perfect for short missions.

Could Secret US PSY-OPS Plane Be Used In Egypt?

If the Internet had remained blocked in Egypt amidst the recent political uprising, what could the US do about it? The US needs to be very careful about its diplomatic efforts. The Obama administration is stating the Egyptians have universal rights, such as free speech, and access to information. But if the ON switch hadn’t been flipped last week, the US military could have resorted to using a secret tool up their sleeve to get people access to information – a heavily modified EC-130-J Air Force plane. Capable of broadcasting it’s own UHF, VHF, AM, and FM signals for hundreds of miles, and overriding any local transmissions, it can also provide Wi-Fi signals, aided through the use of satellite and non-satellite assets. What that really means is classified.
