1. Companies using drones: US military
During a test in California yesterday, the US military launched 103 miniature swarming drones from the body of a fighter jet. The drones are said to 'operate autonomously and share a distributed brain'.
What's more, the drones should be able to bypass air defence systems and even adapt to the flying patterns of other drones to mimic flight patterns in nature.
Previously, the military brought consumer quadcopters and octocopters to the Network Integration Evaluation war games at White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico, and Fort Bliss, Texas.
In May 2016, the US Navy tested drones that could launch into the sky for rapid deployment.
