Swarming Drones

A swarm of 20 drones has recently completed the largest collaborative, military-focused evaluation of uncrewed aerial vehicles (UAVs) in the UK.

The exercise was the culmination of the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl)’s ‘Many Drones Make Light Work’ competition, funded under the MOD’s Science and Technology Portfolio through the Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA).

The swarm consisted of five different types and sizes of fixed wing drones, with different operational capabilities, together with six different payload types, flying representative tasks at RAF Spadeadam in Cumbria. Three operators in Blue Bear’s Mobile Command and Control System (MCCS) managed the entire swarm whilst simultaneously handling different, collaborative payload analysis tasks.

The video is absolutely fascinating and lasts for less the two minutes
