US Navy Develops New Drone Technology

Learn about the latest technology coming from the US Navy, known as “Locust” which was designed as a defensive device to protect US Navy ships. The drones are fired off and then can communicate with each other to form swarms of drones.

Kurt Knutsson, the “Cyber Guy” from Fox News discusses how the new technology works, and under what circumstances it will be used. One advantage of this new technology is that it is inexpensive; the drones can be used on a one time basis. The other advantage is that attacks are done remotely, bringing down the risk to personnel to close to zero.
