Intel to celebrate 50th anniversary with 1500-strong drone show

Intel announced it plans to break the drone light show record at its 50th anniversary celebrations this summer. At the event, which will take place on an undisclosed date, the chip giant will attempt to perform a show with over 1,500 drones. The current world record involved 1,218 drones.
Intel plans to break its world record title for most drones flown simultaneously with more than 1,500 drones flown as part of the company's 50th anniversary events this summer.

"Intel has been advancing technology for 50 years. To celebrate that fact and showcase our ongoing innovation, we're looking to break another drone light show record with our Intel Shooting Star drones and related technology." – Anil Nanduri, vice president and general manager, Intel drone team

How It Works: The current record of 1,218 Intel® Shooting Star™ drones was set earlier this year. The new show featuring more than 1,500 drones is planned for this summer and will be a live one-time public show at an Intel site for employees and their families.

The Intel Shooting Star drones are unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) specifically designed for entertainment purposes, equipped with LED lights that can create countless color combinations and easily be programmed for any animation. The fleet of drones is controlled by one pilot.

Intel's Goals: The technology employed in our drone light shows can be applied to other applications, including search and rescue, where multiple drones can look for a lost hiker, or commercial applications for large infrastructure inspections that reduce inspection time and improve efficiency.

As we look forward, the notion of flying lights and being able to use drones indoors – including in stadiums and theaters, and other indoor venues where GPS signals for positioning are not available – led us to develop new capabilities to fly a fleet of drones inside.

At Intel, we will continue to push the boundaries of drone technology, accelerating the adoption of commercial drone use for business transformation and proliferating this new, innovative form of entertainment.

Intel at AUVSI Xponential: Intel will announce the latest on its commercial drone innovations at AUVSI Xponential on May 1. Witness the latest in Intel drone technology and learn about the newest features and capabilities of both Intel's drone hardware and software solutions at booth #628 and in the Outdoor Unmanned Xperience.
