Title (EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS TO ALLOCATE UNMANNED AIRCRAFT SYSTEMS
(FR) SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS POUR ATTRIBUER DES SYSTÈMES D'AÉRONEF SANS PILOTE
Abstract:
(EN) In some embodiments, apparatuses and methods are provided herein useful to allocate unmanned aircraft system (UAS). Some embodiments, provide UAS allocation systems, comprising: a UAS database that stores for each registered UAS an identifier and corresponding operational capabilities; an allocation control circuit configured to: obtain a first set of multiple task parameters specified by a first customer and corresponding to a requested first predefined task that the customer is requesting a UAS be allocated to perform; identify, from the UAS database, a first U AS having operational capabilities to perform the first set of task parameters while implementing the first task; and cause an allocation notification to be communicated to a first UAS provider, of the multiple UAS providers, associated with the first UAS requesting the first UAS provider to allocate the identified first UAS to implement the first task.
(FR) Certains modes de réalisation de la présente invention prévoient des appareils et procédés utiles pour attribuer un système d'aéronef sans pilote (UAS). Certains modes de réalisation prévoient des systèmes d'attribution d'UAS, comprenant : une base de données d'UAS qui stocke pour chaque UAS enregistré un identifiant et des capacités de fonctionnement correspondantes; un circuit de commande d'attribution configuré pour : obtenir un premier ensemble de multiples paramètres de tâche spécifiés par un premier client et correspondant à une première tâche prédéfinie requise pour l'exécution de laquelle le client demande l'attribution d'un UAS; identifier, à partir de la base de données UAS, un premier UAS ayant des capacités opérationnelles pour effectuer le premier ensemble de paramètres de tâche tout en mettant en œuvre la première tâche; et assurer la communication d'une notification d'attribution à un premier fournisseur d'UAS, parmi les multiples fournisseurs d'UAS, associé au premier fournisseur d'UAS demandant au premier fournisseur d'UAS d'attribuer le premier UAS identifié pour mettre en œuvre la première tâche.
