NOAA Testing a Drone to Locate Marine Debris

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is testing an unmanned aircraft system that can be used to locate marine debris. 

An unmanned aircraft is being tested this month for use in helping to manage the Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary. The primary objective of the 13-pound Puma aircraft is to monitor seabird colonies, as well as locate other wildlife and marine debris.

The Puma is a 13-pound, battery-powered aircraft with a 9-foot wingspan, and is equipped with real-time video and still-photo capability. The aircraft can be hand-launched from any location on land or at sea from a boat and is controlled remotely by an operator. Durable and rugged for deployment to remote marine areas and repeat usage, the aircraft can fly for as long as two hours on a charge and cover a range of about 50 square mile and can be used to survey remote coastlines and open waters for marine debris.
