The China Electronics Technology Group Corporation (CETC) claims to have set a new record for the number of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) flying in a swarm, the state-owned Xinhua news agency quoted the corporation as saying.
中国电子科技集团公司(CETC)声称,在成群飞行的无人机数量方面创造了新纪录,国有新华社援引该公司的话说。
 
The 11 June news report states that the swarm comprised 119 UAVs, breaking CETC's previous record swarm of 67 UAVs. Xinhua did not mention when or where the event took place.
6月11日的新闻报道指出,这个群组包括119架无人机,打破了CETC以前创下的67架无人机记录。新华社并没有提到事件发生的时间和地点。
 
The size of the mini UAV swarm is greater than that trialled by the US Air Force in October 2016 when three Boeing F/A-18 Hornets deployed a swarm of 103 Perdix micro UAVs, which the US Department of Defense noted was one of the world's largest micro UAV swarms to date.
迷你无人机组的规模大于2016年10月美国空军的测试,当时三架波音公司F/A-18型“大黄蜂”部署了103架Perdix型微型无人机,美国国防部指出,这是世界上迄今为止最大的微型无人机群。
 
CETC published a video in 2016 of its fixed-wing UAV swarm prototype, which shows the UAVs in a co-ordinated launch from the ground. The corporation said that the UAVs were flying ad hoc networks, sensing and avoiding collision, and demonstrating autonomous group control.
CETC在2016年发布了一部其固定翼无人机群原型视频,显示协调无人机从地面发射。该公司称,无人机是飞行中自组网络,感知和避免碰撞,并演示自主集团控制。
 
The 2016 video also indicates that the development is aimed at enhancing capabilities in the fields of collaborative intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR), target acquisition, distributed wide area surveillance, and saturation attack.
2016年的视频还表明,开发的目的是提高协同情报,监视和侦察(ISR),目标获取,分布式广域监视和饱和攻击等领域的能力。
 
A CETC engineer was quoted by Xinhua as saying that UAV swarms will become "a disruptive force" that will "change the rules of the game".
新华社援引CETC工程师的话称,无人机将成为“一个破坏力量”它将“改变游戏规则”。
 
In the United States a number of programmes are being run by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the Strategic Capabilities Office (SCO), and the Office of Naval Research (ONR) to develop concepts and applications of UAV/ unmanned aerial systems (UAS) swarms.
美国的国防高级研究计划署(DARPA),战略能力办公室(SCO)和海军研究办公室(ONR)正在管理一些项目,去开发无人机/无人航空系统(UAS)群的概念和应用。
