The Spanish Army has asked Alcalá de Henares-based Escribano company to develop a multiplatform swarm system.
The company has been contracted to develop an autonomous, and multiplatform swarm system for ISTAR (Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition, and Reconnaissance), Search and Rescue and Loitering missions.
It is part of Phase II of the Spanish RAPAZ program for the Spanish Ministry of Defense.
This technology can be used with Military platforms such as the future 8×8 Dragon, from which they would operate in a range of 5-10 km. and could incorporate loitering or attack capabilities against ground targets.
Equipped with cutting-edge artificial intelligence, LISS (Long Range Intelligent Security System) is the only drone swarm system that provides individual and group intelligence for the development of missions autonomously. The swarm is operated by a single operator and its behaviour will be autonomous and can be adapted to the events of the mission.
This technology has both military and civil applications such as defence and protection missions for soldiers, coastal surveillance, control of toxic spills, monitoring of fires, searching for survivors in disasters such as earthquakes, detecting crop diseases or the transport of wares.
