Her proposed drone capabilities:
Mining: either tunnel into unbroken 'roids (low production volume), or mine 'roid fragments (high prod'n volume)
Geology: scan all 'roids in sector
Collection: collect dropped wares
Repair: repair damaged ships
Construction: build OWP's of all 3 sizes.
Minelayer: SQUASH, Tracker, Ion minefield deployment & clearing
Spy: AdvNavSat deployment
..It just occurred that some of these functions could be considered to overlap. Construction & Repair for example, could both use repair laser + other nanotools to both repair and build..and could be essentially the same 'roid with 2 sets of software.
Collection and Minelayer could also be same model..as both functions require grabbing and moving objects from point A to B.
EDIT: just posted on Pelador's ES DAD thread opening discussion on using a relatively few number of drone chassis as bases for multiple drone types.
