    The concept sounds hard to defeat: dispatch a horde of flying, thinking armed robots that can autonomously coordinate amongst themselves an attack against a target.

    If an anti-aircraft weapon takes down one drone, the others change direction, push through and destroy the target kamikaze style.


    Senior Air Force officers and Defense Secretary Ashton Carter are among the military leaders who have touted “swarming” robots lately, although the Air Force Research Laboratory doesn’t like that term. It prefers “distributed collaborative systems.”
