Title (EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR DOCKING UNMANNED AERIAL VEHICLES (UAVS)
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ D'ARRIMAGE DE VÉHICULES AÉRIENS SANS PILOTE (UAV)
Abstract:
(EN) This document describes a system and method through which unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) can be docked, with a device that can secure the UAVs, and information can be transmitted to and from such UAVs. The UAVs are secured through the use of magnetic fields. The system also includes a means for transmitting information between the docking system itself, the UAV(s) and/or between the docking system and a command center, which may be a notable distance from the docking system, or among the docking system, the UAV(s) and the command center.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système et un procédé au moyen desquels des véhicules aériens sans pilote (UAV) peuvent être arrimés, avec un dispositif qui peut sécuriser les UAV, et des informations peuvent être transmises vers et en provenance de tels UAV. Les UAV sont sécurisés par l'utilisation de champs magnétiques. Le système comprend également un moyen servant à transmettre des informations entre le système d'arrimage lui-même, l'UAV (ou les UAV) et/ou entre le système d'arrimage et un centre de commande, qui peut être à une distance notable du système d'arrimage, ou parmi le système d'accueil, l'UAV (ou les UAV) et le centre de commande.
