UavBeehive.x3d

(.x3d scene, pretty-print source, statistics, info & logs, X3DOM Player)

Beehive shelter designed for concrete printing to provide recharging and wireless communications support for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Concept of operations (CONOPS): UAV quadcopters are able to fly in and fly out through circular access at top. Side door lets operators place portable electrical generator inside for robot recharging. Wireless local-area network (LAN) provides airborne video back to protected radio-relay link for offshore/remote monitoring. Rounded concrete shape protects installation from wind, mortar attack and small-arms fire. Expeditionary manufacturing approach frees personnel from tedious sentry duties.
