Composite BALL-Drone / Mountain Accident Rescue

Composite BALL-Drone

BALL-drones are for climbers. The Climbers can bring BALL-drones with them before departure to climb.
When mountain accident happens, the victims can release their ball-drone to the high place. The BALL-drones can connect to each other, so their partners can find them by sounds and light.
After flying in the air, the drone can be positioned by GPS without the cover of trees.
