(FR) TECHNIQUES PERMETTANT DE STOCKER, DE TRANSPORTER ET D'ACTIONNER UN UAV
Abstract
(EN)
An unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) module includes a UAV having foldable wings coupled to a body of the UAV, a UAV case having length and width dimensions that is constructed and arranged to operate in (i) a closed configuration that stores and protects the UAV while the UAV module is transported within the UAV case between locations with the foldable wings in a folded configuration, and (ii) an opened configuration that provides a base from which the UAV launches vertically from within the UAV case while the foldable wings of the UAV remain in the folded configuration. The UAV is constructed and arranged to automatically unfold the foldable wings outwards from the body of the UAV to form a fixed wing that extends beyond the length and width dimensions of the UAV case for fixed wing horizontal flight after the UAV is airborne.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un module de véhicule aérien sans pilote (UAV) comprenant un UAV présentant des ailes pliables accouplées à un corps de l'UAV, un boîtier d'UAV présentant des dimensions de longueur et de largeur qui sont construites et agencées pour fonctionner dans (i) une configuration fermée qui stocke et protège l'UAV tandis que le module d'UAV est transporté à l'intérieur du boîtier d'UAV entre des emplacements avec les ailes pliables dans une configuration pliée, et (ii) une configuration ouverte qui fournit une base à partir de laquelle l'UAV décolle verticalement depuis l'intérieur du boîtier d'UAV tandis que les ailes pliables de l'UAV restent dans la configuration pliée. L'UAV est construit et agencé pour déplier automatiquement les ailes pliables vers l'extérieur à partir du corps de l'UAV pour former une aile fixe qui s'étend au-delà des dimensions de longueur et de largeur du boîtier d'UAV pour un vol horizontal d'aile fixe une fois que l'UAV est en vol.
