ONR’s directorates balance a robust science and technology (S&T) portfolio, allocating funds to meet the warfighter's requirements.
UAVs Swarm, Make Buzz at Sea-Air-Space
At left, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) take flight in demonstrations March 30 - April 3. Office of Naval Research officials announced recent technology demonstrations of swarming UAVs — part of the Low-Cost UAV Swarming Technology (LOCUST) program — at the Sea-Air-Space Exposition on April 14.
LOCUST can launch swarming UAVs to autonomously overwhelm an adversary. The deployment of UAV swarms will provide Sailors and Marines a decisive tactical advantage. (Watch: LOCUST video on YouTube)
