Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Wired.com: “Explore the Murky Depths With an OpenROV Trident Underwater Drone”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

We’ve just gotten used to drones buzzing in the skies over public parks; now they’re set to invade the duck pond. The Trident sits on the crest of this new wave of underwater tech. Using a tablet, smartphone, or laptop as a controller, you can send the craft as deep as 328 feet, to zip around at a top speed of 4.6 mph and record video in 1080p. The Trident is tethered, but that lifeline leading up to the surface is necessary, since radio waves don’t play well in water—plus, if the drone runs out of juice, you can just reel it in. It’s time to finally answer that nagging question: “Do you think there’s a body down there?” | $1,499

There are many ways to kill a drone. But what's the cheapest and most effective way to do it? A cybersecurity consultancy is testing various ways to defend against rogue drones.
