One of the biggest revolutions over the past 15 years of war has been the rise of the drones -- remotely piloted vehicles that do everything from conduct air strikes to dismantle roadside bombs. Now, a new generation of drones is coming. Only this time they are autonomous -- able to operate on their own without humans controlling them from somewhere with a joy stick. Some autonomous machines are run by artificial intelligence which allows them to learn, getting better each time. It’s early in the revolution and no one knows exactly where it is headed, but the potential exists for all missions considered too dangerous or complex for humans to be turned over to autonomous machines that can make decisions faster and go in harm’s way without any fear. Think of it as the coming swarm, and if that sounds like the title of a sci-fi mini-series, well, stay tuned. As we’re about to show you, it’s already a military reality.

And some day in the future SkyNet becomes self-aware and commences with the killing and enslavement of the useless eaters.

Future Scary US Micro Drones Launched by Jet Fighters: PERDIX + LOCUST
Daily Military Defense & Archive


Published on Jan 11, 2017
On October 2016, the US Department of Defense successfully demonstrated one of the world’s largest micro-drone swarms at China Lake with 103 Perdix drones launched from 3 F/A-18 Super Hornets.

"This demonstration is one of the first examples of the Pentagon using teams of small, inexpensive, autonomous systems to perform missions once achieved only by large, expensive ones."

Second part of the Video shows a demonstration of the LOCUST prototype drones, a quite similar project of large amount of small drones operating in group launched by a ground platform.

Last part of the video shows refueling of several US Navy F-18's performed by US Air-Force KC-135 Stratotanker.
