Slaughterbot Drones – The Truth Hurts

“Slaughterbot” Autonomous Killer Drones | Technology

Not quite reality yet…… Click Here for the video

“It’s a seven-minute video, a collaboration between University of California-Berkeley professor Stuart Russell and the Future of Life Institute that shows a future in which palm-sized, autonomous drones use facial recognition technology and on-board explosives to commit untraceable massacres. The film is the researchers’ latest attempt to build support for a global ban on autonomous weapon systems, which kill without meaningful human control.”

This short video shows the possibilities that are being worked on by integrating existing technologies.

Swarm Drones – A Nightmare

Swarm Drones

Can you imagine this…. 1000 x 2Lt bottle size drones flying around you on a100m radius.
What could be worse? They have a 1kilo payload of weaponry.
What could be worse?  They are fully autonomous and once given an order carry that order out, working as a swarm of bees, sending in decoys to distract, defences to remove weaponry defences, attack drones to remove the target…you.
Once released the swarm Drones are completely independent, fully autonomous,  thinking for themselves, operating a flight plan that,  as a group, they are reconfiguring on the fly, second by second. At present the only course of action is defence swarm Drones.
This is now a reality with the release in March by the Us military of these attack beasts. They can be release from rocket launcher, aircraft payload or missile launcher, boat or submarines.
Watch this space.

What are counter drone technologies?

We all see the tiny helicopter drones flying in parks and recreational facilitates. But there is a sinister side, and one that is becoming a threat in Australia.

Over the last 12 months Australia has had unidentified drones flying over

  • Government Buildings in Canberra;
  • Large dam walls holding back billions of liters of water;
  • Main connection bridges such as the Story Bridge in Brisbane and the Sydney Harbour Bridge;
  • Oil and Gas works;
  • Major pipelines supplying cities and ports;
  • Disaster areas after floods and cyclones.

Over seas sinister drone surveillance and attacks have accounted

  • 80 killed through Chemical attack released from drone in April 2017
  • 196 civilian deaths reported in March 2017
  • 613 civilian deaths reported in January 2016
  • Drone Strikes in Yemen have ramped up to new levels never seen before
  • In Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan are designated “areas of active drone hostility,” with major drone strikes

A drone can carry a package and be preset to release the package while the ‘operator’ has long gone from the launch site which may be anything upto 30 km away. These payloads may be cameras spying or surveying points of least resistance; or, more of a threat, could be explosives set to mane, destroy, devastate or cause major disruption and panic.

This video below shows how counter drone technologies will

  • Detect a perimeter breach;
  • Protect a declared zone;
  • Gain control of drone;
  • Remove threat through
    • acquiring its flight signal and landing in a safe zone
    • eliminating the drone threat
    • capturing the drone threat

If the drone can be landed safely without being destroyed the evidence it provides can be used in many ways to identify and capture the initial controller. As One Bright Cloud is specialising in Counter drone Technologies for private, business, government and military usage.

‘Counter drone’ or ‘Anti-Drone’ solutions


Drones are rapidly being adopted for commercial purposes around the globe. This can be seen more in the larger services such as in the mining industry, power and water services, digitization mapping, emergency services and in the Armed forces.

Within the Armed Forces comes the consequential acts of terrorism as they are utilised to survey, map and carry payloads of consequence.

The future will hold a different picture

as the drones are used for unlawful events and not just a simply tactical cost effective activity.

This paper discusses the options when considering purchasing of “Counter Drone technologies”.


Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA’s) or Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, commonly referred to as Drones have been involved in thousands of unlawful incidents worldwide, and have caused a frenzy of activity and concern to security and risk managers.  This as usual due to the theory of ‘escalation of force’, i.e. you use a knife I will use a gun, you use a gun I will use a tank, has created an industry dedicated to stopping the use of drones for unlawful purposes.

Don’t be conned ladies and gents, make sure you get the right advice before you spend your money on a substandard solution.


A 2016 Australian Defence White Paper confirmed the Australian Government would “introduce enhanced intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities, including armed medium-altitude unmanned aircraft in the early 2020s, with regular capability upgrades to follow”.

“In 2015, the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) began training on Reaper drones in the US.”

“Australia already uses drones for intelligence and surveillance, but adding weaponised Reapers would represent a new chapter for the Defence Force.

As part of the war on terror president Barack Obama approved drone strikes mainly in the Middle East, which are estimated to have killed around 7,000 people, some found to be innocent bystanders.”

“IAI, a state-owned company, does not publicly acknowledge its product as an armed drone but stresses the plane can carry “anything” up to 1,000 kilograms.”

“In 2015 Australian Terrorist Neil Prakash was the head of an Islamic State sub-cell plotting to use explosive-laden drones to carry out remote attacks, interrogators have discovered. The raid on Prakash’s apartment found drone capability to remotely guide drones with an explosive payload to a target from up to 30km away”
