Drones are already a danger on the battlefield, and “large-scale adversarial swarms” are now an “imminent threat” according to Isaac Kaminer, an engineering professor at the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School who is an expert in the subject of swarming and counter swarming tactics.

And his team is setting out to discover how a swarm’s intelligence can be used against it.
