The drone development could lead to lower costs and less risk in military welfare, Boeing said in a statement.

Using just a military radio and a laptop, an operator on the ground was able to connect with the autonomous drones instructing them to carry out a mission simultaneously.

‘This swarm technology may one day enable warfighters in battle to request and receive time-critical intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance information directly from airborne (unmanned aerial vehicles) much sooner than they can from ground control stations today,’ Gabriel Santander, Boeing’s program director of advanced autonomous networks, said.
