Title
(EN) AERIAL IMAGING DEVICE AND SYSTEM
(FR) DISPOSITIF ET SYSTÈME D'IMAGERIE AÉRIENNE
Abstract
(EN)
A system for capturing aerial images of an imaging target including and imaging device that is capable of and configured for flight,has no on-board propulsion and is autonomous-in-flight and a launcher or launch adaptor for launching the imaging device and an external processor configured for data communication with the device enables image capture by a robust, autonomous-in-flight imaging device with back-to-base capability, which is very efficient in on-board energy use and easy to use, without extensive training.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un système de capture d'images aériennes d'une cible d'imagerie, comprenant un dispositif d'imagerie qui peut et est conçu pour voler, n'a pas de propulsion embarquée et est autonome en vol, et un lanceur ou un adaptateur de lancement pour lancer le dispositif d'imagerie ainsi qu'un processeur externe configuré pour une communication de données avec le dispositif, lequel système permet une capture d'images par un un dispositif d'imagerie robuste autonome en vol ayant une capacité de retour à la base, qui est très efficace en matière de consommation d'énergie embarquée et est facile à utiliser, sans formation approfondie.
