I think he's referring to a coaxial helicopter UAV from AVIC Beijing.
Lol, I wonder if the MSS will buy some. You just gave me flashbacks to this:Another brochure on the TD-11 UAV. Interestingly, it says TD-11 is capable of facial recognition.
I wonder if this means that it can be used for assassination missions. Drop it from high altitude, and it automatically maneuvers to a pre-designated area where the target is suspected to be located; then it conducts area surveillance and try to match faces to that of the target; if it finds a match, it will then take him/her out.
Lasers and jammers would probably be the most cost effective way.How do you even defend against UCAV swam? Modern radar guided ZPU type things?
That's like some cannibalistic drones... When Skynet becomes active, it will come for you first.Lasers and jammers would probably be the most cost effective way.
It should also be possible to airburst AAA shells and/or SAMs to bring down large numbers of swarm drones at once, especially if they are in the close formation cruise phase as opposed to dispersed attack phase.
Good old fashioned barrage balloons anchoring large nets might also be a cheap and effective means to protect point targets from small swarm drones.
Considering most swarm drones are prop driven, maybe you can develop softkill counters around spamming high strength low weight filaments that can stay airborne for some time and potentially entangle the props.
If we look further into the future, you may have counter-swarm drone drones. That grenade launcher toting Chinese drone posted not long ago would be a potentially good starting point. Give it a laser rangefinder and programmable airbrushing shells and it could potentially do a good job dropping swarm drones almost autonomously.
