    This was featured in a TV programme a couple of weeks back.

    They showcased it, melting a few DJI Phantoms in mid flight.
    Before you judge a man, walk a mile in his shoes; after that, who cares?! He's a mile away and you've got his shoes!

    I think the system that Anduril are using makes more sense to me- there's a video here: https://player.vimeo.com/video/364333850

    Basically we're heading into the Combat Wasp vision of battle that Peter F Hamilton came up with in his Nights Dawn trilogy 20+ years ago, which just shows sci fi is cleverer than outsiders think
