Boeing said it first tested the technology last year with the goal of giving a singular operator control over the UAVs from the ground, flying them in a similar manner to a swarm of insects.
Gabriel Santander, program director of advanced autonomous networks for Boeing Phantom Works, said soldiers could use the system to request and receive intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance information.
The joint experiment was conducted in Oregon for a number of days in June using two ScanEagle UAVs.
The company will display the swarm technology at the AUVSI Unmanned Systems North America 2012 conference and hopes to make the UAVs act as a pack and communicate to complete tasks.
Johns Hopkins and the company conducted the demonstrations through a collaborative agreement and have worked together for nearly 70 years.
