Cannon Launches 30 Drones in Seconds
The United States Navy may revolutionize how wars are fought. They are developing a cannon that can shoot a swarm of up to 30 drones in under 1 minute, Fox news reports.
The Low-Cost unmanned aerial vehicle Swarming Technology (LOCUST) is a prototype tube-launched unmanned air vehicle (UAV). The LOCUST program will make possible the launch of multiple swarming UAVs to autonomously overwhelm any adversary.
The video shows drones in a tube form ejecting from the cannon and then transforming mid-flight into a air plane and flying around the test site.
