UAV swarm is a kind of unmanned swarm operation weapon equipment supported by intelligent unmanned control technology and network information system. This new type of weapon equipment is bound to become an important driver to change the rules of future war. As the leader of UAV swarm operation research, it is of great practical significance for our army to grasp and understand its development trends, learn its relevant useful experience and practices, and refer to its theoretical system and key technologies. To this end, this paper combs and summarizes the pioneering work of the U.S. military in the research of UAV swarm operation, clarifies the development context of UAV swarm operation, and focuses on the background, basic concepts and development status of UAV swarm operation. Combined with the research foundation of the research group in the field of UAV swarm operation, this paper analyzes 6 difficult problems that restrict the development of UAV swarm, and discusses the feasibility of dealing with UAV swarm operation, so as to provide theoretical guidance and technical basis for our army to build bee colony operation system and related capabilities in the future.
