We had the opportunity to build a rover for a demonstration that Northrop Grumman just had. Thought I would share it.
The basic idea was to help address the bad wrap drones get from the news. NGC has been using something they call a Global Innovation Summit to demonstrate drones capabilities that helps humanity. This year was a beta test for a team of drones that will fight simulated fires that represent disasters around the globe.
They had 5 teams: Fixed wing Eye in the Sky that loitered waiting to identify fires and their location, this info was relayed back to command that dispatched either a fixed wing fire bomber(fight Forrest fires), rotary supply quad(drops supplies into a disaster area), or a heavy lift quad that delivered a rover(fight urban fires). Everything was completed through FPV on board each vehicle, all teams and pilots were blind to the actual field. Every team was asked to perform tasks manually, semi-auto and fully auto.
Anyways check it out, all 100% designed and built in house at our high school.
