The SPARROW robot is difficult to shoot down, because it is paired with a drone at a safe height.
Advanced engineering company BMT has received a patent for a delivery robot called SPARROW, according to Dronelife.
This is an autonomous device for lowering cargo from drones to the ground, including on the battlefield. “Sparrow” (as SPARROW can be translated) is a light suspended robot that descends along with the load, while the carrier itself (UAV) remains at a safe height. At the same time, SPARROW independently controls its descent and adjusts its horizontal position for safe and quiet delivery, which is important during special operations, missions, and campaigns.
The concept of the robot was originally developed by the BMT team not only for the military, who use drones as a means of resupply, but also for civilian purposes – rescue operations or to deliver the necessary equipment to rescuers. In addition, “Sparrow” can be used in other complex areas, such as the oil and gas industry or forestry.
SPARROW allows the drone to stay at a safe distance while avoiding obstacles or attacks
SPARROW has a number of advantages over traditional drone delivery methods. First, it allows the drone to stay at a safe distance from the ground and avoid obstacles or attacks. Secondly, since the drone may not go low for delivery, the noise from its propellers will not be noticeable to the enemy. Thirdly, it improves the accuracy and reliability of cargo delivery in difficult conditions.
The BMT robot is quite versatile and can adapt to different types of cargo and drones. It is also equipped with a feedback system that allows the UAV operator to know about the delivery status and give the robot the necessary commands. SPARROW also has high maneuverability and wind resistance. It can change the speed and direction of its movement depending on the environmental conditions. It can also automatically determine the optimal drop height and adjust accordingly.
The concept of using SPARROW at the front
