DARPA video shows autonomous drones swarming a building⠀

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is experimenting by using a swarm of autonomous drones and ground robots to assist in military missions. They conducted a recent test in which the video showed how its robots analyzed two city blocks to find, surround and secure a mock city building.⠀

Going into further details, teams undertook tasks including locating and isolating a mock city hall building, locating and securing an objective inside, and then securing the building. Those tasks were completed while maintaining situational awareness of the surrounding area. Test runs lasted up to 30min. The team likens this to the way firefighters set up a perimeter around a burning building.⠀

Earlier tests⠀
DARPA conducted its test back in June in Georgia, featuring both drones and ground-based robots. The demonstration was part of DARPA’s OFFensive Swarm-Enabled Tactics (OFFSET) program, designed to eventually accompany small infantry units as they worked in dense urban environments, and could scale up to 250 drones and ground robots. The test back in June was the second of six planned tests, whose complexity will increase as they ought to happen over the next couple of years.⠀
