Darpa tests a swarm of 250 drones to assist the infantry in urban areas

In a test conducted last June in the state of Georgia (United States), Darpa, the research agency of the US Department of Defense, brought together ground and air drones in a simulation of a military mission. She published the progress of the operation in a video on YouTube.

In a two-block area, the drones had to carry out different tasks in autonomous teams. They were able to locate and isolate a target building, find an objective inside, and then secure the building while monitoring the surroundings. Each operation lasted up to thirty minutes.
