The invention described herein provides an apparatus and a method to cooperatively track and intercept a plurality of highly maneuvering asymmetric threats using networks of small, low-cost, lightweight, airborne vehicles that dynamically self-organize into an ad hoc network topology. This is accomplished using distributed information sharing to maintain cohesion and avoid vehicle collisions, while cooperatively pursuing multiple targets. An oracle vehicle relays network information to a control base.
What is claimed is: 1. A method for intercepting at least one target comprising: providing a plurality of canisters adapted to be deployed from a platform each having an address and an explosive warhead; providing each of said plurality of canisters with a sensor operable to detect one or more targets operably coupled to a signal processing circuit; coupling said signal processing circuit with a computer processing unit (CPU) operable to run routines and algorithms for wireless communication, information measurement, information collection, information ...
