Drone navigation without GPS neither GPRS

The navigation systems that rely on external signals, such as GPS, GPRS, etc. Become limited when in navigation environments that interfere with the communication in some way. The following research presents itself as a solution for the previously stated submarine navigation problem, foreseen that the water blocks the communication with any satellite, for example. The water, in said case, absorbs the waves that transfer information between the satellite and the drone and vice versa.
