Advanced Tactics Inc., a California technology company, has benefited from funding from the Congressional Special Interest Program to enable the development of a transformer style drone that can turn into a truck in order to facilitate troop and cargo transport.

Classified as a ‘Multi-Mission Medical and Casualty Evacuation Unmanned Air Vehicle/Unmanned Ground Vehicle’, its development began in 2009 at the US Army Telemedicine and Advanced Technology Research Center.

Described as a Chimera by Popular Science, the simple description is that it’s a flying car that can provide different solutions for different combat scenarios. As Popular Science points out, sending an unmanned robot vehicle as opposed to a piloted one has distinct military advantages. It can fly in all weather conditions and doesn’t risk the loss of personnel in combat situations.

The drive component of the vehicle has already been tested, and the  flying ability of the craft is set for trials next month.
