This paper introduces a miniature prototype of a high-precision autonomous aerial payload delivery system developed by the authors and discusses its perfonnance as cqmpared to other commercially available systems. Its superb perfonnance is assured by using advanced guidance and control algorithms resulting in establishing and tracking an optimal inertial reference trajectory, which is constantly updated based on the best estimates of the ground winds. The paper also discusses the novel networking capability of the developed system and .discusses its integration with an unmanned aerial platform it is deployed from and unmanned ground vehicle it delivers within 5m-15m from the target.
