BEIJING – China has launched a swarm of 119 fixed-wing unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), breaking the previous record of a swarm of 67 drones, according to the China Electronics Technology Group Corporation (CETC).

The 119 drones performed catapult-assisted take-offs and formations in the sky.

According to the CETC, “swarm intelligence” is regarded as the core of artificial intelligence of unmanned systems and the future of intelligent unmanned systems.

Zhao Yanjie, an engineer with CETC, said that since drones were invented in 1917, intelligent swarms have become a disruptive force to “change rules of the game.”

119架!中国再次刷新固定翼无人机集群试验纪录

新华社6月10日消息,中国电子科技集团公司成功完成了119架固定翼无人机集群飞行试验,刷新了此前2016年珠海航展披露的67架固定翼无人机集群试验记录,这标志着智能无人集群领域的又一突破,奠定了我国在该领域的领先地位。

试验中,119架小型固定翼无人机成功演示了密集弹射起飞、空中集结、多目标分组、编队合围、集群行动等动作。据了解,“集群智能”作为一种颠覆性技术,一直被各国视作无人系统人工智能的核心,是未来智能无人系统的突破口。大规模、低成本、多功能的无人机集群通过空中组网、自主控制、群智决策,可以应用于多种探测感知、应急通信等任务。

中国电科智能无人系统专家赵彦杰表示,自1917年无人机作为一种新型装备问世以来,100年后的今天,智能无人集群再一次成为“改变游戏规则”的颠覆性力量,以集群替代机动、数量提升能力、成本创造优势的方式,重新定义着未来力量运用的形态。
据介绍,随着人工智能、网络信息、微纳电子、先进平台、增材制造五大新兴技术的迅猛发展,智能无人集群将呈现系统智能化、网络极大化、节点极小化、平台多样化、成本低廉化五大特点,并加速推进智能无人集群向装备系列化、应用多样化、覆盖全域化快速发展。
