  • Publication number: 20200407078
    Abstract: A flying object control system includes a flying object, and a setting base that performs holding of the flying object and releasing the holding, the flying object and the setting base being communicable with each other. The flying object controls, upon receiving a takeoff instruction, thrust for taking off from a predetermined initial position, and when the thrust becomes greater than or equal to a first threshold, the flying object notifies the setting base of a start notification. Upon receiving the start notification, the setting base releases the holding of the flying object and notifies the flying object of a release completion notification. Upon receiving the release completion notification, the flying object takes off from the predetermined initial position by controlling the thrust in such a manner that the thrust becomes a second threshold smaller than the first threshold.
