Modular System Quickly Converts Container Ships to Drone-Powered Humanitarian Aid Stations

 When disaster strikes and a humanitarian crisis unfolds, international aid generally arrives via naval ships--often the very same military vessels designed to put troops and materiel ashore during military conflicts. That works okay, but it involves pulling naval vessels off their primary security missions and then moving them to where they can help, which can take days. To help get aid to the places its needed faster without bothering the Navy, Raytheon has designed a modular approach for quickly outfitting commercial container ships with an array of advanced technologies designed to move humanitarian cargo ashore to the places its needed most, no seaport necessary.
