Title:
RAPID ELECTROLYTE REPLENISHMENT SYSTEM FOR AERIAL DRONES
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2020/121067
Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
A metal air battery electrolyte replenishment system comprised of a base station with docking receptor apparatus and matching docking probe on a flying drone. The probe onboard the drone has a sensor that guides the drone to connect with the electrolyte docking receptor on the base station. The drone uses the probe to obtain fresh electrolyte and simultaneously expel spent electrolyte into the base station while still in flight or during a brief landing. Rapid exchange of the electrolyte allows for extended range and flight time without penalty of onboard electrolyte reconditioning system and its associated weight.
