The Pentagon may soon be unleashing a 21st-century version of locusts on its adversaries after officials on Monday said it had successfully tested a swarm of 103 micro-drones. Military strategists have high hopes for such drone swarms that would be cheap to produce and able to overwhelm opponents' defenses with their great numbers. he test of the world's largest micro-drone swarm in California in October included 103 Perdix micro-drones measuring around six inches (16 centimeters) launched from three F/A-18 Super Hornet fighter jets, the Pentagon said.

In recent years, drone technology has attracted attention due to its use in countless conflicts around the world. Even though unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have proven hugely successful in military service for decades, they also hold enormous commercial potential. Companies are just beginning to unlock the numerous benefits of drones, experimenting with everything from crop-dusting to pizza delivery. UAV technology has made huge strides in recent years, along with regulations and investment support, making it far more user-friendly for commercial applications.

Hundreds of drones are expected to hit the Singapore skies in the near future, but many questions how they will safely fly over dense and urban areas have risen lately. Researchers have unveiled a traffic management system, which is much like the traffic laws and infrastructure cars have on roads. Named Traffic Management of Unmanned Aircraft Systems, this initiative would designate air-lanes and use virtual fences to reroute drones around restricted geographical locations.

Leaders in the unmanned aircraft industry are trying to persuade young people who think drones are cool to consider flying them for a living. Commercial pilots must obtain a FAA drone license, and some companies that employ such pilots have started selling classes that help students prepare for the FAA test or just figure out whether they would be interested in such a career.

BI Intelligence, Business Insider's premium research service, has compiled a detailed drones report that forecasts sales revenues for consumer, enterprise, and military drones. It also projects the growth of drone shipments for consumers and enterprises. One clear trend that emerged in 2016, and will only intensify as we start 2017, is the transformation of news-gathering, and journalism overall, as a result of the rising prominence and increasing capabilities of drones. Drones are not just toys, but enterprise tools as well as part of a new wave in media.
