Constructed from composite aluminum, the Sea Scout has a wingspan of 17 feet. But, in the interest of taking up less space on a ship's deck, it is designed to be stored in a standard-size shipping container. It also houses onboard sensors that can measure altitude and wave data to aid in takeoff and landing. It is currently in its flight test phase in Texas and is expected to go into production at the end of 2008.
