By | October 5, 2018

This document describes a system and method through which unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and other vehicles (e.g., unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs), also known as autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs), unmanned water-surface vehicles (USVs), unmanned ground-surface vehicles (UGVs) and vehicles with the attributes and/or characteristics of more than one such category of vehicles (such as amphibious vehicles)), can be docked, with a device that can secure such vehicles, and information can be transmitted to and from such vehicles. The vehicles are secured through the use of magnetic fields produced by toggling magnets. The system also includes a means for transmitting information between the docking system itself, the vehicles and/or between the docking system and a command center, which may be a notable distance from the docking system, or among the docking system, the vehicle(s) and the command center.
