Killer Drone Swarms Are Here

Two important stories in the news:

First, Israel has confirmed using drone swarms in combat.

…in mid-May, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) used a swarm of small drones to locate, identify and attack Hamas militants. This is thought to be the first time a drone swarm has been used in combat.

Second, a June 14th drone swarm in Shanghai suddenly fell apart and dozens crashed, causing injury and damage.

And speaking of loitering munitions, a third news story confirms the US Marines are adopting Israeli technology.

Manufactured by the Israeli company UVision Air, the system has been selected after the completion of several successful demonstrations, tests, and evaluation processes. The system will provide the Marines Corps with ISR, highly accurate and precision indirect fire strike capabilities.
