Engineers from the U.S. Army Research Laboratory flight test 3D printed drone called ODSUAS.

In December 2016, engineers from the U.S. Army Research Laboratory flight tested 3D printed unmanned aircraft created with a new on-demand system. The demonstration, which was part of the Army Expeditionary Warrior Experiments, or AEWE, at Fort Benning, Georgia, showcased new technology designed to provide Soldiers in the field with rapid unmanned aerial vehicle support.
The 3-D printed On-Demand Small Unmanned Aircraft System, or ODSUAS, flies at speeds of up to 55 (88 km/h) miles per hour. Although the lightweight shell and propeller arms are printed using additive manufacturing, the motors and propellers will be assembled using off-the-shelf equipment. (Photo Credit: Angie DePuydt)
