What will be the next step in the evolution of drones?

Trusted Ukrainian military drone instructor and FPV-drones volunteer said about reconnaissance and attack drones getting some new features soon.
What do you think it will be? AI target lock? Unjammable coms?
Do you think drones will be separated into generations as planes?

    Next step? No idea.
    Future step is linking recon drones to platoon sized elements with smart VR glasses or headset, indicating range and position for machine gunners and friendly APCs and tanks. Information could then be relayed to friendly air support.

    I was thinking about miniaturized C-RAMs during lunch today, that could be mounted on the back of an APC, and then deployed when the troops dismount. Useful as an anti drone countermeasure if there’s no good EWAR available.

      they're not going to use mini c-rams because that's a bit moronic but they are going to use laser interceptors on Strykers and potentially hummers etc to do the same thing
      source: it already is happening

      The drone footage goes to the battalion command that gives orders to the platoon. That's how it currently works in the Ukrainian military. And it's much more ligical.

    Give all the Ukranians a VR headset that makes them forget the fact that Russia now controls a sizeable amount of their country, and that drones won't change that fact, because drones don't win wars as evidenced by the entire history of drones in warfare even if you can manage to kill a single enemy combatant and film it as propaganda footage.
    Yes, those drones are good.

      Technically those regions have been declared by Russia as Russian territory... Which means that Ukraine is invading Russia and Russia is failing to repulse them.

    next step is AI obviously
    maybe they mount machine guns on it since that should be the obvious thing to do

      This shit won't work. You need to stabilize the gun and drone, provide enough ammo for the drone, and make it small so it won't be shot down easily.
      All Ukrainian octo-bombers work during nighttime because they are fricking big and will be dead pretty fast during daytime.

      That's a lot of steps away.

      >but all the capabilities already exist in various different platforms
      yeah, and all the capabilities of a halo dropship exist on various different platforms too but we aren't building one of those any time soon either

    point and shoot accurate bomb drops while moving makes more sense. it'd lower the skill requirements for drone pilots.
    or anti-radiation solution.

    I think it’s a way off, but I’d like to see a larger quadcopter that can evacuate wounded OR…. Kidnap a mobik for intel.

    I would like to see loud phone music where a terrified mobik gets picked up and carried away.

      Would be more fun if they just picked up mobiks and interrogated them while hovering high up in the air, then dropped them if they lied or had nothing useful to say.

    Microscopic drones that fly up your booty hole and explode. Now imagine the footage from that.

    ML based image recognition and locking. Then semi-autonomous command execution of orders, with a single pilots taking over a swarm. Drones are basically destined to turn first into a 99% autonomous swarming killing machines at this point. If this war will go for another couple of years we will most likely see most of this on the real battlefield in its early versions.

    I don't wholly understand why you'd need anything more than mass-produced cheapo drones with decent camera/computer vision for autonomous target acquisition (so they don't turn worthless the moment they're jammed)
    sure, you can have some fancy toys at several million a pop... or you could have several hundred times the amount of disposable trash that still blows up

    Fully automated drones, it has already been happening. Drone tankettes with turrets. Then drones that are able to send each other information so they can work together autonomously.
