The amphibious drone is the drone that is capable to travel in both air and water. In order to move through water, buoyancy force needs to be balanced and it challenges the structural integrity, it must have a better communication system with more penetration and less attenuation of the signal. To overcome that challenge the radio signal and Acoustic communication are widely used in the amphibious drone. In underwater, we have difficulty to get a clear view of positioning, for that there will be a mini system installed on the drone that will automatically calculate and sets their tracks to find the position, depth and time of the system. To achieve better communication an extra ground station will be installed. For controlling the motions of the drone in an effective manner the microcontroller is used as a flight controller for transmitting and resaving the user data. the aluminum alloy is used in the amphibious drone to avoid structural damage. Based on the above consideration the amphibious drone has been developed and measuring their efficiency in both air and water, after experimentation this amphibious drone may be used for coastal rescue, surveillance, oceanographic research etc. The entire design and development of amphibious drone are in progress and testing to be done in the future.
