First of all apologies if I've put this question in the wrong field, I wasn't sure. I'm translating a brochure on an underwater drone and am not quite sure of the meaning of armement in the following. Am thinking it's something like activation or loading. Thanks for any help.
Avant d’activer le drone, vérifier que l’émetteur est bien immergé.
Laisser au minimum 5m d’espace autour du drone en prévention d’un éventuel mouvement de recul à l’activation du scénario.
Ne surtout pas tenir le drone au moment de l’activation pour éviter tout risque de blessure du plongeur.
Changer le mode de la télécommande, des retours sonores confirment l’armement des moteurs.
