Submission + - Flying Robots can land on each other (suasnews.com) 1

Episode three of the agressive quadrotor series from The General Robotics, Automation, Sensing and Perception (GRASP) Lab at Penn Engineering. https://www.grasp.upenn.edu/

Whilst still within the motion capture rig it can’t be long before all the processing can be calculated onboard. Once computing power is there GRASP have all the sums for making future missions happen.

Easy to see the range increasing potential of one smaller aircraft landing on another and coming home after perhaps an extended perch and stare mission.

Or if something that was being lifted proves too heavy for one craft add another to help."
