Application: Aerial vehicle with deployable components (Patent ID: US20240017815A1)

The patent filed by Anduril Industries Inc. describes an unmanned aerial vehicle with deployable components (UAVDC) that includes a sweeping gearbox to deploy wings from a compact to a deployed arrangement. A controller is configured to detect launch conditions, monitor for specific conditions, and trigger the gearbox for wing deployment based on the detected conditions. The system is designed to adjust the sweep angle of the wings, extend outer sections with control surfaces, and modulate deployment rates based on launch configurations.

The method outlined in the patent involves deploying wings using the sweeping gearbox, detecting launches, monitoring conditions, and activating the gearbox for wing deployment. The system can respond to various conditions such as velocity, acceleration, time, and leveling, and is adaptable for different launch scenarios including aerial and ground launches. The method also includes securing the wings in the deployed arrangement, adjusting sweep angles, and modulating deployment rates based on the configuration of the sweeping gearbox and specific conditions detected during the flight.
