During a speech at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington this week, DOD Secretary Ash Carter teased news on the SCO’s swarming drones operating on the sea and in the air.
“In fact, this technology took a large step forward this week,” Carter says. “You’ll be hearing about it more in the months to come.”
During his time as deputy secretary of defense, Carter stood up the SCO in 2012 to breath new life into existing platforms within the DOD’s inventory. Last year, the office revealed its Arsenal Plane concept, a standoff system with a large weapons carriage that would support forward aircraft.
