Unmanned Aerial Vehicle- a Lethal Weapon of Tomorrow for Terrorists is an article by Aleksander Olech

Terrorism has long been employed as a method of warfare, evolving alongside advancements in weaponry. Modern terrorists increasingly utilize explosives, firearms, guided missiles, and, notably, drones. The proliferation of arms has empowered terrorist groups with access to sophisticated weaponry, posing significant security challenges for states and societies worldwide. This trend has garnered attention in international security forums, where discussions revolve around the growing militarization of terrorist organizations.

The narrative emerging in recent years suggests that terrorists may expand their arsenal through collaboration with state actors. The global competition surrounding artificial intelligence (AI) technology further exacerbates this risk, potentially granting terrorist organizations access to AI-supported weapons.

As a result, there is a growing concern that terrorists may increasingly employ AI-driven weapons, posing significant challenges for security forces. The prospect of terrorist groups utilizing swarms of drones, in particular, is a looming threat that requires urgent attention and proactive measures to mitigate.
