Sharks Flying Over Griffiss: Government Contractor Testing New Drones
December 2, 2016
It’s a bird. It’s a plane. It’s a shark? The small gray aircraft that has recently appeared in the Griffiss Airport traffic pattern is an unmanned aircraft system (UAS) manufactured by Navmar Applied Sciences Corporation (NASC) located in Warminster, Pa. NASC was contracted by the U.S. government to build a special version of an existing and proven drone, the TigerShark, for use in the Arctic.
