 Chinas UAV bee colony attack technology develops rapidly

Although the bee colony technology of UAV was first proposed by the US military, it also points out the direction for other countries with strong UAV technology development strength. It is no exaggeration to say that once the UAV bee colony technology is put into large-scale application, it is likely to change the combat form of the future battlefield.

In the bee colony combat picture of UAVs released by CETC, 48 UAVs can be launched by one launch vehicle.

UAV bee colony technology to the front stage

In essence, the drone swarm technology is a continuation of the cluster assault tactics which has been widely used by military forces of all countries since ancient times. From the Mongolian cavalry, which was almost invincible across Eurasia in the 13th century, to the Blitzkrieg and wolf pack tactics of Nazi Germany in World War II, to the large-scale deep operation of the Soviet army after the war and the saturation attack tactics formulated for the US aircraft carrier formation, all emphasized that the maximum number of troops or firepower should be sent out in the shortest possible time to concentrate on the attack An enemy group target, destroy and destroy it completely.

However, different from the cluster attack tactics in the cold weapon era and mechanized war era, with the rapid development of information technology, the UAV bee colony technology, which appeared only after 2010, has put forward the requirement of high artificial intelligence autonomy across the era, and truly achieve the goal of reducing or even not relying on manual control as much as possible. This is a milestone for the development of weapons and equipment in the future and the change of tactics in the future.

The concept of UAV bee colony technology was first proposed by the advanced research projects agency of the U.S. Department of defense in 2014. This project mainly focuses on how to make UAV have better autonomous combat capability under high-intensity military confrontation.

The Electric Power Research Institute of CETC has carried out the relevant test flight work of the bee colony system of the land air cooperative fixed wing UAV, which has verified the ability of launching and launching the bee colony of fixed wing UAV to carry out various tasks such as ground observation and strike, precision attack, etc. The land air cooperative fixed wing UAV bee colony system disclosed this time is the first practical UAV bee colony in China, which shows the whole process mission capabilities of vehicle rapid deployment, dense launching, hovering launching, mobile launching, accurate formation, formation transformation, ground observation and strike, and precision attack.

A total of 48 drones are deployed on the ground vehicles, which can launch 48 UAVs.
