New UK research is looking into growing military drones

For years, military and civilian drones have been flying with parts made by 3D printers, but scientists and engineers in the UK have decided to take the matter further. Professor Lee Cronin from Glasgow University have revealed that his team is conducting a research that would allow to chemically grow whole drones in laboratory.

The technology, referred to by scientists as "chemputer", would enable fine-grained control over chemical reactions and allow chemical components to be guided at molecular level. If fully developed, it would allow complex mechanical components to be assembled from lose materials with virtually no human intervention.

The technology is being developed with the backing of BEA Systems, a global corporation that specialises in defence technologies. And this is not surprising, considering that the technology is being developed mainly for military applications. For example, it would, in theory, allow to produce UAV's close to front lines, substantially reducing the costs associated with logistics and manufacturing time.

Unmanned military drones are on the course to replace conventional manned fighter aircrafts. US Navy is already training more drone operators than military pilots.
