Reconnaissance for Weapon Detection and Enemy Order of Battle Awareness
AbstractObjective: This paper is about microbot for Reconnaissance (i.e. surveillance of the enemy border) which will provide early awareness of EOB (Enemy Order of Battle) to the army. The microbot will provide precise location and strength of the enemy troops. Methods: In this paper, descent control system module is used to glide the microbot to increase the time of flight. The microbot will launch using portable hand-held launcher. Telemetry receiver present in the microbot which will stream video on real time to GCS (Ground control station) is used. Findings: Physical parameters like altitude, pressure, temperature, speed, location will be transmitted to GCS. An active video module which consists of a wireless video transmitter and a pan-tilt mechanism driven by micro meters is used. Improvement: The video module is part of a miniature micro robot that is projected to areas of the environment to be surveyed. UAV microbot capable of analysis of data and real time video are featured. A perching mechanism using UAV is implemented on a < 350g flying platform which is integrated onto real flying microbot and successful perching maneuvers are illustrated as a proof of concept.
Keywords: Microbot, Ground control station, Wireless module, Micro camera, Mission planner.
