UK Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson gave a speech at the RUSI on 11 February in which he called for “swarm squadrons of network enabled drones” that would be capable of overwhelming the enemy. He said the first practical trials would be taking place towards the end of 2019 and that the money for the project is being provided under the Defence Transformation Fund. He also committed to an unspecified but supposedly “significant” increase in the UK’s £1.9 Billion cyber defence budget. See: http://www.gov.uk/government/speeches/defence-in-global-britain
