  • The United Kingdom has developed a new drone devoted strictly to battlefield combat.
  • The drone uses sensors and machine vision technology to detect targets.
  • Once located, the drone can blast away at the target with twin shotguns.

The U.K. has developed a new fighting drone designed to help soldiers breach urban defenses. The i9 uncrewed aerial vehicle can navigate indoors, locate and identify targets, and then open fire with not one but two shotgun barrels. Like all weaponized drones, a human operator must make the decision to shoot or not shoot.

The drone, revealed by the Times of London, was developed for the British armed forces. The drone is meant to act as a breaching weapon, flying into a small room or house occupied by enemy troops and neutralizing them from within.
