Cricket phone and accessories are getting a boost from the US Department of Defense, which is announcing a $10 million investment to help manufacturers build and support more affordable versions of the device.
The US Navy is expected to spend $10m to create a new drone-friendly version of the Cricket, which could be the world’s first drone-compatible cricket phone.
It is also set to invest $5m to bring the Cricket to the US.US Defence Secretary Ash Carter is also promising that drone manufacturers will be able to make a drone compatible with the Cricket’s battery pack.
The batteries can help provide greater range in high-altitude flying and would be used to power the drone’s cameras.
“This is going to be a real game-changer,” said Chris White, senior vice president for commercial affairs for Drones for America.
“We are going to see a lot more of this type of innovation, and it’s going to benefit the aviation industry in general and the U.S. military in particular.”
The Cricket was released in the US last year and is a high-end version of its predecessor, the Cricket Plus.
The new model comes with a 5.8-inch 1080p screen, an 18:9 aspect ratio and a 3,000mAh battery.
The Cricket Plus came out in December 2014, with the company also releasing a drone called the Cricket X, which launched in December 2016.
The Cricket Plus is a quad-core processor with quad-channel RAM and an 8GB storage, and can be configured to operate in flight, fly autonomously or even take off.
It costs $599, and is now available for preorder.
The new Cricket drone will be available in March 2020, according to the announcement.
“The new technology will enable our drones to fly farther, fly faster and be much more versatile, while simultaneously offering greater comfort and safety,” Carter said in a statement.
“The next wave of drones will be capable of delivering a variety of functions at a lower price point and being safer, more capable and more versatile.”
