Drones work together to collect info on enemy activities

Washington Post:
Meet the drone swarm: These tiny aircraft can execute a mission with little human input

The drones, instead of individually being given an order, are instead told to conduct broad tasks, such as observing an enemy airfield. The drone swarm then executes the mission, flying and adapting by communicating with each other.
This is an example of the positive influence of artificial intelligence in what are essentially flying robots.  It is another way in which they act as a force multiplier.  They would be especially effective for a special ops unit scouting enemy locations.

There is more on these drones launched by jets here.
