초록

The present invention provides apparatus and methods for accurate guidance of small munitions to a target. The guidance for the small munition is mainly provided by a device external to the small munition, such as an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). The UAV may provide external guidance commands by use of a command transmitter to the small munition. The small munition is equipped to receive the guidance commands and consequently use a maneuvering mechanism to react to the guidance commands. The UAV may determine a successful release point of the small muni...

1. A system for delivering and guiding a munition from an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) to a target, comprising: a passive sensor mounted on the UAV, the passive sensor providing a sensor output corresponding to a sensed condition associated with an area being traversed by the UAV, and the passive sensor capable of being articulated with respect to the UAV as controlled by a gimbal controller;a command transmitter for transmitting commands from the UAV to the munition, the munition having at least one command receptor for receiving the commands, and the ...
