    Seriously there is a set of missions that are done by cruise missiles and strike aircraft today that can probably be done much better by autonomous ucavs, but there are also probably things that are complex and dynamic enough that you'll want mark 1 brains to make decisions.

    If you put brains in the middle of the swarm you give them access t9 VA's5 amounts of realtime data and real tome command over what the swarm does. If you have them back at the ship you might be allowing your bandwidth to be reduced to a trickle and extending your latency in decision execution by minutes or hours.

    It will be another version of ooda and the guy who can get reliable low latency large bandwidth communications despite constant jamming and attacks on intermediaries will do it better. That guy is probably in the middle of the action, within direct like of sight of at least some of his AI buddies.

    Sorry about the spelling. Post8ng from my cell phone.
    Maybe, maybe not. I suspect that in reality, neither of us know what we don't know.

      • I wouldn't at all be surprised to see something along the lines of an F-35 flying in a clean, stealthy configuration and controlling a handful of drones who do the actual bombing. If EM becomes a problem, as long as the F-35 maintains line of sight, it could communicate with the drones via a tight laser beam to get around jamming and avoid giving away its position by radiating.

          What do you mean we don't know? It's just physics:



          Everything else is just a derivation away.

          Ok, maybe we don't know. ;)

                    • I'd never thought of it in that way, just a bunch of overpaid actors saying douchey lines on a soundstage to me.

                      A few months ago I watched Top Gun with a female friend of mine who'd never seen it. She was more than a little amazed/skeptical about the "pervasive homoerotic imagery" throughout the film but of course mainly in the locker room scenes. As soon as she said that, it hit me.

                        Have to say, seeing that shot again, I always wonder about Val Kilmer and the way he puffed himself out on that shot. It was borderline at a minimum...


                        As to what a Tailhook party will look like in the future I can show you what a Tailhook luncheon looks today. All is haze gray and not necessarily under way...

                          Even if the technology were ready for this, there's no way in hell we go with an autonomous ROE. I mean, our C2 systems have had the capability to auto-ID for decades...download the ATO and ID criteria, and if you give the system permission it can take a track all the way to hostile. And that feature has been used exactly zero times. It's not even remotely an option. They're certainly not going to give control over weapons release to an automated system, in addition to auto-ID authority. Since the introduction of BVR capability, the US has almost exclusively avoided using it over identification concerns. The pendulum hasn't even begun to swing the other direction yet, but handing the reins to an autonomous system is aaaaall the way over on the other side.

                                Rum, sodomy and the lash. I guess we have to settle with only one, yes?
