Drones can autonomously attack static or moving targets

Military contractor Edge Group has introduced a ‘suicide drone’ swarm system designed to autonomously attach to targets.

Edge, a state enterprise of the United Arab Emirates, unveiled the loitering munitions system at the Unmanned Systems Exhibition and Conference (UMEX) 2022.

“We see AI playing a critical role in the advancement of the defense sector and beyond,” said Saeed Al Mansoori, CEO of Edge’s Halcon, which developed the drones, in a statement.

The system houses Hunter 2-S drones that can communicate amongst themselves to determine how many are needed for a specific target.
