CICADA – Close-in Covert Autonomous Disposable Aircraft

CICADA - for Close-in Covert Autonomous Disposable Aircraft, is developed by the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) to enable rapid dispersion of communication nodes, sensors, or effectors can then be placed in a programmable geometric pattern in hostile territory without directly over-flying those regions or exposing human agents on the ground.

Tempest with CICADA 3
CICADA is a concept for a low-cost, GPS-guided, micro disposable air vehicle that can be deployed in large numbers to "seed" an area with miniature electronic payloads. These payloads could be interconnected to form an ad-hoc, self-configuring network. Communication nodes, sensors, or effectors can then be placed in a programmable geometric pattern in hostile territory without directly over-flying those regions or exposing human agents on the ground.
