Enhancement to radar/map system: the B.U.Z.A.R.D.

A flying observation platform. Rather than returning to a roboport to charge, it perches on power lines and recharges via induction. It acts like radar in terms of mapping and scanning sectors, but its combined scanning range and flight range are bigger than a radar unit's so it can gather info from farther afield, and can relocate to any part of the map served by a power grid. It can either be set to explore the frontier as far away as it can fly and map more distant areas or concentrate on a patrol zone and monitor the activity of certain nests more closely. It soars rather than hovering (assuming that isn't an enormous pain to sprite) and tends to circle in flight.

The name is fun with acronyms: Biomimic Unexplored Zone Aerial Reconnaissance Drone (which I realize makes no sense in anything but English. Please excuse my americanness.)
