The use of miniature aerial UAVs is a growing phenomenon. Indeed, after the large UAVs reserved for the military field and those dedicated to scientific studies, light UAVs are now widespread for civilian applications thanks to their agility and attractive costs. Demonstrators are notably emerging in the fields of defense and security.
Moreover, coordination in swarms would make it possible to multiply the gains brought by light UAVs. Among these, reducing the size of UAVs, distributing the payload, speeding up the completion of a mission and offering the possibility of deploying a fleet of UAVs on several missions in parallel are all benefits that pave the way for new uses.
The decision-making autonomy of a complete system made up of a fleet of different UAV systems is the key element, allowing to respond to a tactical operational reconfiguration without the need for a permanently dedicated operator.
In this context, our objectives are threefold:
These first two elements will be integrated on a base station which will be materialized, depending on the application, by a computer, a tablet or a control case (in a military context for example)..
This project is carried out with
