Title
(EN) UNMANNED AERIAL VEHICLE SHIPPING CONTAINER
(FR) CONTENANT D'EXPÉDITION PAR VÉHICULES AÉRIENS SANS PILOTE
Abstract
(EN)
System are described for cargo transportation comprising a container adapted for the storage of cargo and adapted for transportation by UAV. The container has features of a shell defining and interior space adapted for the containment of one or more cargo items. The container has a closable aperture in the shell allowing access to the interior of the shell and for cargo insertion into the interior of the shell. For adjustability of the centre of gravity of UAV by movement of cargo items within the container, one or more inflatable bladders located, at least in part, about the periphery of the interior space. Variable or controlled inflation of the bladders is provided to allow insertion of cargo into the shell interior when in a deflated state and stabilise the cargo, and permit centre of gravity adjustment within the interior when in an inflated state.

Cette invention concerne un système de transport d'une cargaison, comprenant un contenant conçu pour le stockage d'une cargaison et conçu pour le transport par véhicules aériens sans pilote Le contenant a la forme d'une coque définissant un espace intérieur adapté pour contenir un ou plusieurs articles de cargaison. Le contenant a une ouverture pouvant être refermée dans la coque, permettant l'accès à l'intérieur de la coque et l'insertion d'une cargaison à l'intérieur de la coque. Pour permettre l'ajustement du centre de gravité du véhicule aérien sans pilote par le déplacement d'articles de cargaison à l'intérieur du contenant, une ou plusieurs vessies gonflables sont situées, au moins en partie, autour de la périphérie de l'espace intérieur. Un gonflage variable ou contrôlé des vessies est prévu pour permettre l'insertion d'une cargaison à l'intérieur de coque à l'état dégonflé et stabiliser la cargaison, et permettre un ajustement de centre de gravité dans l'intérieur à l'état gonflé.
