I am working on disaster relief drones for a college project. I was thinking about having multiple set of drones launched from an aerial vehicle over the disaster prone area. That's when I came across a big challenge.
How would you effectively decelerate a UAV that is air launched from an aircraft which is flying at a much greater speed than the maximum allowable speed of the UAV?
The stall speed of the aircraft is much larger than the maximum speed of the UAV (assuming, it has to be a very low cost UAV and hence the idea of having a parachute for deceleration is not very effective).
I would be glad if anyone could suggest me simple and robust ways to do achieve this.
