Thank you for the thoughtful explanation - very fascinating! I hadn't thought of navigation being so problematic underwater, but the inability to use standard equipment and lack of traditional navigational tools must be incredibly difficult. I could imagine a small robot using your thruster being used almost like an underwater drone, and being sent out from a larger vessel to explore small or hard- to-reach places like high pressure trenches. Perhaps some connection to a larger vessel could help mitigate the increased risk of losing such a small robot. But, as you said, there are many other issues that need to be explored and overcome first.

Best of luck with your prototype!

Thank you for explaining that. I can see how that could be much more useful for intelligence gathering than a destroyed drone. How concerned do you think private citizens and companies using sUAS should be about the vulnerabilities you found? Especially considering you used off the shelf models anyone can buy?

Thank you for sharing your research! I wish you the best of luck on your next steps on the project.

How scalable do you think this type of engine/propulsion system will be? If goal is to support research vessels, what do you as the biggest barriers to implementation?

Thank you for sharing your research! It will be exciting to see the final results once you are able to complete the testing.

Obviously this research is closely tied to how your stakeholders operate in the field. How would you hope to see your research put into practice? Do you envision a modification of current practices and equipment, or a whole new lighting system to be deployed?

This is great research, and so clearly applicable to both private and military uses of sUAS. Can you tell me a little more about the introduction to the research, specifically what kinetic weapons are, and why they factor into how we exploit or protect sUAS in the field?

It looks like we have name overlap. The "Cassandra" who posted a bunch 2 days ago (last Friday) was me. The Cassandra/TheRealCassandra this morning is a new poster (welcome!). I created an account to help cut down confusion :)

This looks so intense! The trailer gave me goosebumps. Thanks for sharing!
