I agree, the platforms can be very similar across military, search-and-rescue, and scientific exploration/monitoring apps.

Ann, you might want to include underwater robots in you future blogs, they are used extensively for mine countermeasures, waterborn IED defeat, search and rescue, ship hull maintenance and many other critical tasks. Some good examples might be the SeaBotix LBV: http://www.seabotix.com/products/vlbv950.htm or the LBC, which can both swim and attach to and crawl on subsea structures: http://seabotix.com/products/lbc.htm Both have numerous commercial uses in addition to maritime security.

Thanks, Think Deep, we've already done two slideshows on nautical robots, some of which are military, and many of which are AUVs, UUVs and/or ROVs:

SeaBotix is a new one to me, though--thanks for the link.

The military now has a two-piece 3D printed drone that can be deployed from a backpack. If it gets shot down they can always print another one up in a matter of 24-hours. Talk about progress.
