Autonomous drones can soon follow troops to act as eyes in the sky and carry out detailed surveillance and reconnaissance missions. So far, the use of drones by military personnel is carried out in the category of "pilot" UAV applications.
The use of stand-alone drones extends the flexibility of terrain operators. It also raises important questions about the use of autonomous and robotic systems in national defense.
"Aerial robots provide us with unique capabilities that the government seeks to develop and develop. They are completely self-sufficient and are a valuable asset for a better understanding situationSaid Nader Elm, CEO of Exyn Technologies.
Exyn has begun to grow for businesses and is active in areas such as oil and gas and infrastructure inspection. Her aircraft company designed to operate in complex environments where there is no GPS, where unknown terrain and uncertain terrain conditions can put the lives of soldiers at risk.
These capabilities make aircraft well adapted to defense applications as well. Unlike other unmanned aerial vehicles used for ground-based, pilot-based wars, Exyn's aircraft are fully autonomous and operate without the need for a pilot or pre-charters. A new feature called Scoutonomy allows Exyn drones to collect further baseline data to support military intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, such as mapping terrain and tangible structures and determining the position of enemy forces and equipment.
It is important to note that Exyn drones are surveillance tools and have no weapons. They are therefore not subject to strict restrictions in accordance with Directive No 3000.09 of Ministry of Defense, which provides for restrictions on stun guns to prevent them from triggering in the event of loss of communication. But the growing dominance of autonomous defenders systems shows shifting behaviors in the Ministry of Defense USA and signals a further reliance on robotic tools in war conflicts.
Exyn for example argues that autonomous systems can help them troops stay safe and avoid operating accidents due to inadequate or inaccurate intelligence.
"We are very proud of our robots' ability to detect threats, reduce operational risks and save the lives of soldiers and civilians in the unknown and unstable. situationsSays Elm. "Now you can send a drone to perform extremely sensitive missions that are very dangerous to human soldiers, and get data that is unprecedented in terms of detail and accuracy."
It is also worth noting that there are political implications for technology, including support for search-and-rescue disaster relief efforts. Drones like Exyn can help quickly find survivors trapped in inaccessible areas. Because Exyn's drones can cover more areas and transmit critical data information faster than many other systems, they are potential life-saving tools for coordinating the ground group response, which is usually the most time consuming aspect of these processes. But the real money is in defense, not in search and rescue.
