US Navy Swarm UAVs

The U.S. Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) recently demonstrated autonomous operations by multiple “swarms” of unmanned air and ground vehicles, unattended ground sensors, video cameras and other devices linked together in an intelligent network powered by EdgeFrontier platform technologies from Augusta Systems, Inc.

Basically using one operator to control a fleet of aircraft.

The RAF did tests on swarm UAV operations from an airborne controller in a Tornado in 2007 using QinetiQ technology called Autonomy

I wonder if they were using the fluid dynamics model to control these swarms?
