Staging energy sources to extend flight time of a multirotor UAV

11 Nov 2020 Jain Karan P. Tang Jerry Sreenath Koushil Mueller Mark W.

Energy sources such as batteries do not decrease in mass after consumption, unlike combustion-based fuels. We present the concept of staging energy sources, i.e. consuming energy in stages and ejecting used stages, to progressively reduce the mass of aerial vehicles in-flight which reduces power consumption, and consequently increases flight time...
