UAV carrier in a box

Your little air force in a shipping container

Just saw the Club-K shipping containers that carry a single deployable UAV

But it looks like you still need human labour to open the doors, and deploy the UAV.

I wonder if another version is made that doesn't need one, and can store multiple UAVs in the same container.

Might be lots of quadrocopters since it would be easier to launch and land it into a robotic landing pad, but it would be more useful if it is fixed wing aircraft.

So if fixed wing, you'll gotta somehow make the container deploy a mini-airstrip, that is big enough to launch an aircraft and also land em all without human intervention.

As for why anyone would need a swarm of UAVs in a shipping container, launch-able without human intervention. Beats me.

But it would make for easier integration with IFTTT

IFTTT http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IFTTT
IFTTT is a web-based service that allows users to create chains of simple conditional statements, called "recipes", which are triggered based on changes to other web services such as Gmail, Facebook, Instagram, and Craigslist.[5] IFTTT is an abbreviation of "If This Then That" (pronounced like "gift" without the "g").[6] [mofosyne, Mar 30 2015]
