Title (EN) GAS-FILLED CARRIER AIRCRAFTS AND METHODS OF DISPERSING UNMANNED AIRCRAFT SYSTEMS IN DELIVERING PRODUCTS
(FR) AÉRONEFS PORTEURS REMPLIS DE GAZ ET PROCÉDÉS DE DISPERSION DE SYSTÈMES D'AÉRONEFS SANS PILOTE DANS LA LIVRAISON DE PRODUITS
Abstract:
(EN) In some embodiments, apparatuses and methods are provided herein useful to transport unmanned aircraft systems to delivery products. In some embodiments, gas-filled aerial transport and launch system, comprises: a transport aircraft comprising: a gas chamber; and a carrier compartment where the gas chamber induces a lifting force on the carrier compartment; at least one propulsion system; and a navigation control system that controls the direction of travel of the transport aircraft; wherein the carrier compartment comprises: an unmanned aircraft system (UAS) storage area configured to receive multiple UASs; and an UAS launching bay that enables the UAS to be launched while the transport aircraft is in flight and while the UAS is carrying a package to be delivered.
(FR) La présente invention concerne, dans certains modes de réalisation, des appareils et des procédés utiles pour transporter des systèmes d'aéronefs sans pilote pour livrer des produits. Dans certains modes de réalisation, le système de transport et de lancement aérien rempli de gaz comprend : un aéronef de transport comprenant : une chambre à gaz; et un compartiment porteur où la chambre à gaz induit une force de levage sur le compartiment porteur; au moins un système de propulsion; et un système de commande de navigation qui commande la direction de déplacement de l'aéronef de transport; le compartiment porteur comprenant : une zone de stockage de systèmes d'aéronefs sans pilote (UAS) conçue pour recevoir de multiples UAS; et une baie de lancement d'UAS qui permet à l'UAS d'être lancé tandis que l'aéronef de transport est en vol et que l'UAS transporte un colis à livrer.
