Royal Navy’s Jet Backpacks Show Us The Future Is Now

Ya’ll aint gonna believe this right here, ahead of it’s time, recently an eye-opening display by the UK marines garnered international attention across technology and defence industries alike. In a video released by tech-firm Gravity Industries, a jetpack operator is seen completing a maritime boarding operation with the UK Royal Marines in the latest trial of the new technology. Through the use of a jetpack, the video shows a pilot lift-off from a moving rigid inflatable boat and fly over the sea to reach the larger target vessel – the Royal Navy’s HMS Tamar in this case – before releasing a ladder overboard to the awaiting powerboat below.
