Examining the potential benefits and dangers of drone swarms with assistance from Canada's National Cybersecurity Consortium.

January 4, 2024

Rapid advances in artificial intelligence and machine autonomy provide a wide range of possibilities for deploying drone-based swarm technology. Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), sometimes referred to as drones, are used in a variety of industries, including security, surveillance, and search and rescue operations, either independently or by remote control. They work in package delivery, precision farming, infrastructure inspection, and environmental monitoring.

Combat tactics are changing everywhere as a result of the growing use of SWARM, or programmed clusters of drones, for military objectives. On the battlefield, these independent entities collaborate to improve coordination while distributing authority. The impact of such technologies is visible in international military operations, indicating a fundamental shift in battle tactics.
