What is the problem?
The term “drone swarm” is increasingly attracting public attention thanks to some eye- popping demonstrations being reported by media outlets such as CBS “60 Minutes”. A typical drone swarm system may consist of as few as two drones to as large as over 100 drones. As the number of drones in a swarm system increases, so does the required level of autonomy to control them without manual human piloting. However, effective and robust management of the autonomous drones themselves may be significantly hindered in Anti-Access (A2), Area- Denied (AD) and bandwidth limited environments (BLEs)
