MOSCOW, SEPTEMBER 23, 2013. PIR PRESS – Air defense systems will sooner or later have to face aggressive, well-armed and resilient groups of drones. Thanks to their collective distributed intelligence, these groups will act as parts of a single whole. They will be able to analyze the situation to the same standard of accuracy as humans, only faster. Human operators may be part of their control systems, adding an element of creativity and unpredictability,” – writes PIR Center Senior Vice President Lieut.-Gen. (Ret.) Evgeny Buzhinsky in his article for Security Index journal.

The new issue of Security Index journal (international edition) covers such global and regional aspects of international security as the global prompt strike weapons and its impact on international stability (by Amb.

Evgeny Buzhinsky writes in his article “The Outlook for UAV Research and Development”: “Air defense systems will sooner or later have to face aggressive, well-armed and resilient groups of drones. Thanks to their collective distributed intelligence, these groups will act as parts of a single whole. They will be able to analyze the situation to the same standard of accuracy as humans, only faster. Human operators may be part of their control systems, adding an element of creativity and unpredictability”.
