Some additions to what Felix already said:
- We know that a big limitation to have multiple UAVs doing collision avoidance on their own is that the traffic informations are currently relayed from the ground (and tcas resolutions as well actually). Some people are working on workarounds to allow air-to-air communication, but a new version of the message protocol would help for this (and we have been thinking about this for a long time now...)
- The GCS (and a single operator with enough experience) can currently handle three aircrafts easily, and up to 5 or 6 if they are flying well and the flight plans don't need to much attention. More aircraft is probably a pain because of the number of interactions required (no group control), the performances of the whole system going down, the big mess of trajectories unless you reduce the tracks length...
- Hooperfly started an "flight robot commander" (https://github.com/paparazzi/flyingrobotcommander) to ease the control of multiple UAVs. You can find a few youtube videos as well.
- 2 years ago, I gave a student project for my student where they tried to handle groups of UAVs and send common commands. It sure is not that easy to do properly...
Beside that, I really believe handling multiple UAVs as easily as a single one is an important goal to achieve for us.
Can you tell us a bit more about the kind of applications your aiming for ?
