Title (EN) AN UNMANNED AERIAL VEHICLE
(FR) VÉHICULE AÉRIEN SANS PILOTE
Abstract:
(EN) An unmanned aerial vehicle (2) comprising: a fixed wing (6); a pair of nacelles (10) connected to the wing (6) and spaced laterally either side of a centreline of the wing (6), wherein each nacelle (10) comprises a stationary portion (14) which is fixed to the wing (6) and a movable portion (16) which is rotatable relative to the stationary portion (14); and a rotor (12) connected to the movable portion (14) of each nacelle (10); wherein the movable portion (14) of each nacelle (10) has a first position in which the axis of rotation of the rotor (12) is substantially parallel to a longitudinal axis of the nacelle (10) and a second position in which the axis of rotation of the rotor (12) is substantially perpendicular to the longitudinal axis of the nacelle (10); wherein the movable portion (16) comprises a strut (22) which in the first position lies against the stationary portion (14) and in the second position extends downwards away from the stationary portion (14) to support the unmanned aerial vehicle (2) during take-off and/or landing.
(FR) L'invention concerne un véhicule aérien sans pilote (2) comprenant : une aile fixe (6) ; une paire de nacelles (10) reliées à l'aile (6) et espacées latéralement de part et d'autre d'une ligne centrale de l'aile (6), chaque nacelle (10) comprenant une partie fixe (14) fixée à l'aile (6) et une partie mobile (16) pouvant tourner par rapport à la partie fixe (14) ; et un rotor (12) relié à la partie mobile (16) de chaque nacelle (10). La partie mobile (16) de chaque nacelle (10) présente une première position dans laquelle l'axe de rotation du rotor (12) est sensiblement parallèle à un axe longitudinal de la nacelle (10) et une seconde position dans laquelle l'axe de rotation du rotor (12) est sensiblement perpendiculaire à l'axe longitudinal de la nacelle (10). La partie mobile (16) comprend une entretoise (22) se trouvant, dans la première position, contre la partie fixe (14) et s'étendant, dans la seconde position, vers le bas à l'opposé de la partie fixe (14) afin de soutenir le véhicule aérien sans pilote (2) pendant le décollage et/ou l'atterrissage.
