What impresses aside from the size of the swarm they tested is that PERDIX evolving at a rapid rate. Developed in 2013 at MIT and PERDIX 7th generation in the works.

20 min endurance at 40-60 knots is not bad.

Launch a few hundred of these and you can overwhelm any defense.

BTW it started in 2010 (not 2013) as a student capstone project at MIT. Holy hell!
