500 Intel drones to replace fireworks above Travis Air Force base for Fourth of July

The Fourth of July will be a little different tomorrow at Travis Air Force base in Fairfield California. Instead of fireworks, 500 Intel Shooting Star drones will take to the sky and preform an aerial routine in honor of the holiday and the base’s 75th anniversary. These are the same drones that preformed at Disney World , the Super Bowl and the Olympics. One person controls the fleet of drones thanks to a sophisticated control platform that pre-plans the route of each drone. At that time Intel engineers told me that the system can control an unlimited amount of drones. In the version I saw, the drones used GPS to stay in place and the drones lacked any collision detection sensors. It’s an impressive show of technology. I was in attendance for the first show at Disney World and the drones are a wonderful alternative to fireworks. Sure, fireworks are a Fourth of July tradition, but they can’t do the things these drones can do plus, since they’re much more quiet, more people can enjoy the show.
