Israel expects to develop national AI system for massive drone traffic in 2 years
On Wednesday, Israeli authorities demonstrated the first national air test in which a group of drones, operated by their respective companies from a control room about 50 km away, flew simultaneously at a distance of a few meters away from each other.
The flight tasks performed at the same time by the drones in shared small air space included lifting equipment, shooting videos, and delivering goods to a designated distribution station.
Israeli authorities stated that the pilot would be run for two years, and it will be a significant global breakthrough in the ability to manage drone operations at scale.
In early 2020, a government steering committee was established to support and promote a national drone network operation titled the NAAMA Initiative.
The project is supported by the Innovation Authority, Israeli Prime Minister's Office, Civil Aviation Authority, Ministry of Transportation, private companies and others.
In recent years, more and more Israeli companies, as well as amateurs, have begun to use drones for a variety of purposes such as photography, monitoring crops and securing properties.
