Bugs in the sky: Boeing showcases drones that behave like a ‘swarm of insects

Boeing engineers have successfully demonstrated new technology that enables drones to function like a ‘swarm of insects’ where they can communicate and carry out tasks in mid-air.

Using just a military radio and a laptop, an operator on the ground was able to connect with the autonomous drones instructing them to carry out a mission simultaneously.

‘This swarm technology may one day enable warfighters
( Haha, what a great euphemism, for a schmuck who kills people halfway around the world like it was a fucking video game)
in battle to request and receive time-critical intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance information directly from airborne unmanned aerial vehicles much sooner than they can from ground control stations today.

The University of Pennsylvania GRASP Lab have also tested drone ‘swarm’ technology recently, showing off a network of 20 nano quadrotors flying in synchronized formations.

The SWARMS goal is to combine swarm technology with bio-inspired drones to operate ‘with little or no direct human supervision’ in ‘dynamic, resource-constrained, adversarial environments,’ the university said.

So here is a glimpse at your future never ending warfare, technological slavery world. Looks like Skynet will be here sooner than expected
