Title (EN) ADMINISTRATION OF SUBSTANCES TO ANIMALS
(FR) ADMINISTRATION DE SUBSTANCES À DES ANIMAUX
Abstract:
(EN) An unmanned aerial vehicle substance administration payload (10) includes a mounting (12) configured to mount to an unmanned aerial vehicle capable of hovering (a UAV). A magazine (14) is configured to hold at least one unguided free-fall projectile (16) configured to administer a substance to an animal upon impact with the animal. The magazine (14) is carried by the mounting (12). A release mechanism (18) is provided to release the unguided free-fall projectile (16) from the magazine (14) so that the projectile (16) can drop under the force of gravity from the magazine (14) to a target animal directly below the magazine (14). Aiming means (20) is associated with the magazine (14) to determine whether the magazine (14) is vertically directly above the target animal. A method of administering a substance to an animal using a UAV is also provided.
(FR) L'invention concerne une charge utile d'administration de substance de véhicule aérien sans pilote (10) comprenant un support (12) configuré pour être monté sur un véhicule aérien sans pilote capable d'un vol stationnaire (un UAV). Un chargeur (14) est configuré pour contenir au moins un projectile à chute libre non guidé (16) configuré pour administrer une substance à un animal lors d'un impact avec l'animal. Le chargeur (14) est porté par le support (12). Un mécanisme de libération (18) est fourni pour libérer le projectile à chute libre non guidé (16) du chargeur (14) de sorte que le projectile (16) puisse tomber sous la force de gravité du chargeur (14) vers un animal cible directement sous le chargeur (14). Des moyens de visée (20) sont associés au chargeur (14) pour déterminer si le chargeur (14) est directement verticalement au-dessus de l'animal cible. L'invention concerne également un procédé d'administration d'une substance à un animal au moyen d'un UAV.
