Mono Tiltrotor UAV
More drones folks. This time we have something from Baldwin Technology in response to a request from the US Office of Naval Research.
The concept is basically this. The Mono Tiltrotor (MTR) would be small enough to go inside a cargo plane. A crew would attach supplies such as food, batteries etc. The vehicle would then take off, deliver the supplies and return on its own.
This would eliminate the need to put helicopter crews in harms way when delivering supplies in hostile areas.
