I don’t like it, not one bit. Last night I awoke to a buzzing sound. I open my window and there, before my eyes, a swarm of quadrotors pulling maneuvers, laying waste to the neighborhood, scaring children and cats… Take a look. It could happen.
The below is a demonstration of nano quadrotors at the GRASP Lab, University of Pennsylvania. The vehicles were developed by KMel Robotics. The fear developed by the possibilities. Just keep running.
GlobalGorillas has something to say about these being weaponized.
Benefits of swarming attacks include:
- It cuts the enemy target off from supply and communications.
- It adversely impacts the morale of the target.
- It makes a coordinated defense extremely difficult (resource allocation is intensely difficult).
- It radically increases the potential of surprise
