Unexplained ‘drone swarm’ caught on camera over the US Navy’s most advanced ship

New US Navy footage shows a swarm of drones of unknown origin flying over the USS Zumwalt, a highly sensitive “stealth destroyer” in California waters in April 2019.

the video obtained by The War Zone through the Freedom of Information Actfeatures a sailor describing an array of lights from six drones over the USS Zumwalt while filming the encounter:

No official explanation has been offered for the incident, which All Hands, an official Navy website, has called “the world’s largest and most technologically advanced surface combatant.” reviews ridiculed him as a flop after a series of problems, and at a cost of $4.4 billion to develop, an expensive one.

The incident documented in the video was one of several “drone swarm” events around US Navy ships that took place in 2019.

“I am aware of those sightings, and as has been reported, there have been other sightings of aviators in the air and of other ships not only from the United States, but from other nations, and of course other elements within the joint force of The US, Adm. Michael Gilday, chief of naval operations, said last year: via NBCNews. “Those findings have been collated and are still being analyzed.”

In recent years, videos have surfaced showing unknown fast-moving objects near US military sites, what the US military now calls UAP (unidentified aerial phenomena), but more are known. commonly as UFO (unidentified flying objects). These videos have led to speculation that the objects in the sky were unknown technology from a foreign power, or even from another world.

However, the new images showed objects moving in more expected ways and likely have an explanation much closer to home. An anonymous former drone industry analyst told The War Zone that the objects in the images appeared to be ordinary drones.

“I don’t see anything in the drone that would make me think it’s something you can’t buy off the shelf of a current commercial drone manufacturer,” the analyst said, adding that the drones seemed programmed to fly. a specific pattern and at an altitude “which to me is not the hallmark of any advanced technology.”

The analyst also noted that the location, 17 miles from the coast, and the number of drones indicated that it was likely a planned operation launched from a ship.

Last year, Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, then head of US Central Command, described drones as the “most troubling tactical development” since the use of improvised explosive devices in Iraq. according to military times.

“I’m not just talking about large unmanned platforms, which are the size of a conventional fighter jet that we can see and operate with normal means of air defense,” he said. “I’m talking about the ones you can go out and buy at Costco right now for $1,000.”
