This patent brings forward a lockable storage compartment which can be fitted into a standard window, or stand alone on a roof or a field. If its mounted in a window, the digital interface and door to the locked compartment can be on the inside, and a platform for the drone to land on can be on the outside. Interesting additional features the done can have are: drone charging station and ID verification via radio waves. Lastly, the landing pad can be configured to fold into the window when it is not used, as to reduce wind resistance.
