Perdix Swarm Demo

In one of the most significant tests of autonomous systems under development by the Department of Defense, the Strategic Capabilities Office, partnering with Naval Air Systems Command, successfully demonstrated one of the world’s largest micro-drone swarms at China Lake, California. The test, conducted Oct. 26, 2016 consisted of 103 Perdix drones launched from three F/A-18 Super Hornets. The micro-drones demonstrated advanced swarm behaviors such as collective decision-making, adaptive formation flying, and self-healing.

    Интересно, как они поведут себя против Российских систем РЭБ последнего поколения? Обычные системы ПВО против них неэффективны. Получается либо РЭБ, либо ракета с мощным электромагнитным импульсом, активируемая недалеко от них. Но думаю что все же это серьезная проблема, если таких выпустить тысячу да еще и не одну стаю.

    So, what are these used for? It’s very cool, but what’s the utility here?

    Сомнительно, что у них будет большая дальность полета. А это значит что самолету носителю придется войти в зону действия ПВО противника. Против каких нибудь папуасов пойдет.

    It’s a good thing…..just overwhelm the enemy defenses wth cheap resources…… maximize their radar signature and flood the battlespace

    This swarm can easily be downed by the electronic warfare
