Google has announced the acquisition of start-up drone manufacturer Titan Aerospace for an undisclosed amount. Google hopes to use the drone technology for "delivering Internet service to underserved areas, particularly in the developing world." The solar powered drones can stay airborne for up to five years and are currently used in applications such as search-and-rescue aid. Google said in a statement regarding the acquisition, "It's still early days, but atmospheric satellites could help bring internet access to millions of people, and help solve other problems, including disaster relief and environmental damage like deforestation."
