    "Listen, and understand. That terminator is out there. It can’t be bargained with. It can’t be reasoned with. It doesn’t feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead."


    Aliens had the UA 571-C Automated Sentry Gun,[1] known colloquially as the "Robot Sentry"

    In the real world Samsung make the SGR-A1 which is voice activated. So if you find yourself in Korea's DMZ you'd better speak Korean and know the pass phrase or be invisible to visible, infra red and thermal imaging.


    CIWS systems are designed to take out targets automatically. The Dutch one uses the gun from the A-10 and it's been in service for the last 40 years.

    Skynet killer robots. Science fiction fantasy?

    We live in a world where there are actual fleets of robot assassins patrolling the skies. At some point there, we left the present and entered the future.

    From 2009 BTW.

    No drone worries. Innocent bystanders are not really people. Rather collateral damage. And the remote drone controller has no personal feelings playing just another online game.

    CCTV video processing has been around forever. They wouldn't have had to upgrade the drones as they already provide video feeds.

    Haven't needed a human for ages.

    non-fiction possibly used in Libya

    Turkey is inside the EU customs union.

    Are killer robot drones getting used in the Putin war by Russians and Ukrainians?

    Switchblades.



  • Moderators, Recreation & Hobbies Moderators, Science, Health & Environment Moderators, Technology & Internet Moderators Posts: 86,985 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Capt'n Midnight


    Not yet. Ukraine using Turkish ones. Russians using there own ones. Some have already crashed in neighbouring countries.



  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Science, Health & Environment Moderators, Society & Culture Moderators, Regional Abroad Moderators Posts: 8,080 CMod ✭✭✭✭ Fathom


    Correct me if wrong. Biden plans to send 100 switchblades to Ukraine shortly. Not sure if they are small (300?) or large (600).



  • Moderators, Recreation & Hobbies Moderators, Science, Health & Environment Moderators, Technology & Internet Moderators Posts: 86,985 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Capt'n Midnight


    seems to be the small single use ones



    One of these crashed in Croatia. This Ukrainian Tu-141 weighs about 6 tonnes and can drop bombs. Drones come in different sizes.

    It’s said that some of the largest drones can hover for awhile before engaging a target. Some with weapons and others in a kamikaze dive into target.

    The most famous drone during the Karabakh escalation was the Turkish Bayraktar TB2 striker. Its characteristics: flight radius of 150 km, maximum speed of 250 km/h, operating altitude of 22500 feet, flight time of 24 hours, maximum payload of 155 kg. Many other models of drones were also used: Israeli Heron TP and Hermes 4507 reconnaissance and surveillance drones, Sky Striker and Harop bomber ammunition.

    In addition, Azad systems, a joint venture with Israel, produced the Aerostar reconnaissance drone and the Orbiter1K and Orbiter-3 "kamikaze" drones. Finally, the Coast Guard had two more long-range Hermes 900s.

    The U.S. Army is developing drones with swarm intelligence. In October 2016, a microdrone swarm consisting of 103 Perdix vehicles was successfully tested.

    Swarm intelligence involves the coordinated actions of a large number of agents (boids) that interact locally with themselves and the environment. Although each boid follows simple ground rules, together the swarm intelligence system exhibits extremely complex cooperative behavior. It acts effectively as a single large organism.

    Drones are the future. That's for sure. Only a drone can accomplish a combat mission so effectively. The work of swarming drones is shown in the 2019 film Angel Has Fallen. It's very impressive. More here

    Wonders how much action research is being conducted in Ukraine today to beta test the latest killer drones?
