I am working on a project that is attempting to send a glider ~150nm to a GPS location and when the glider gets within 5 miles of the GPS signal, a new GPS signal would be transmitted to the autopilot to update in flight. None of our team members are Electrical Engineers, or any good at coding.
I need to know a couple of things:
- is this feasible?
- What would it take to make something like this happen assuming money wasn’t an issue?
- Our glider potentially will be equipped with a Pixhawk 4, 2 servos, GPS, some sort of high powered radio TX/RX, and some other ancillary devices for operations. Once the glider gets within the 5 miles, we need it to receive the updated GPS signal to re-route the glider to the updated position. Is this possible with the current technology?
Thank you for your help!
