As of now, we are assuming we wont loose GPS Signals... but if we do, we would use the localization of the other nodes to reference its required destination.

So nodes 'A', 'B' and 'C' have GPS reception and know where they are. How does node 'D', without GPS reception, know where it is in relation to the other nodes and the destination?Does the ultrasonics work for tree avoidance? I know bats can do it but I always thought they must be doing some pretty smart 3D processing since they can locate and catch insects.
If by drone you mean quadcopter then you are going to spend most of your time and all your money repairing it every time you hit a tree. It could be a very expensive project.Suggest you start with a land vehicle. If you can dodge the trees then upgrade to something that flies.
Unfortunately I am not totally sure on the GPS question because that is a different teams part of the project. They are working on those kinds of problems while my team works on the hardware.
This project is a governmental one, which are typically capable of more expenses
Are we to believe that the "government" hires teams of complete amateurs, who don't talk to each other, and come to the Arduino hobby forum for advice?
