Ukraine is in the process of constructing an ‘unstoppable’ fleet of AI-driven super-drones, engineered to autonomously locate and eliminate targets with precision, according to sources.

These advanced kamikaze UAVs are designed to evade Russian interception or jamming, relying on cutting-edge image recognition technology to swiftly neutralize their objectives.

Initially launched by ground crews, these drones are manually guided towards their targets by operators. However, once they reach a mile's distance from their destination, a sophisticated AI system takes control.

This AI system enables the drone to navigate through electronic countermeasures and air defense systems, honing in on its target using image recognition before delivering a precise strike.

According to Kateryna Chernohorenko, Ukraine’s deputy defense minister overseeing drone negotiations, this autonomous capability significantly reduces the vulnerability of these attack drones to Russian countermeasures, particularly in the crucial final phase of engagement.

Chernohorenko describes the system as "last-mile targeting," emphasizing its reliance on visual navigation rather than satellite communication.

The deployment of this technology allows operators to maintain safer distances from the frontline, enhancing overall operational flexibility.

This initiative, costing around $1.5 billion, receives substantial backing, as reported by The Telegraph.

Termed as "machine vision" by Noah Sylvia, a research analyst at the Royal United Services Institute, this AI system is trained to identify geographic features and targets independently. Once deployed, it operates autonomously, without the need for constant satellite communication.

Ukraine's relentless pursuit of innovative battlefield technologies has positioned it as a global leader in drone production.
