The Navy SEALs are expected to be outfitted with the latest technology as they train in the Blacktop area of Blackpool, the latest move by the Defense Department to ramp up its use of drones.
The first exercise is scheduled for April 24, 2018, with an anticipated total of more than 40 missions during that time.
The drills will include a team of Navy SEAL snipers using drones to track targets and track moving targets.
The team will also conduct search and rescue operations.
The exercise comes as the Defense Secretary, Ashton Carter, is considering a plan to open a drone base in Africa.
It would be the first time the military has made such a move.
The Pentagon has been developing drone capabilities for years, and has used drones in more than 200 airstrikes in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The Navy is already using unmanned planes to conduct special operations missions.
The Navy has been looking at expanding its use in recent years, after a series of mishaps with drones.
In 2015, an unmanned drone crashed on the deck of the USS Ponce in the Arabian Gulf, killing nine sailors.
The next year, an unarmed drone was shot down by a missile fired from a U.S. drone in Yemen.
In 2017, an armed drone flew dangerously close to a Navy destroyer.
The drones have come under scrutiny from lawmakers, who say they can be used for surveillance, and the military is worried about them flying too close to ships and planes.
The FAA has banned them from flights within 10 nautical miles of the coast of the United States.
The Air Force has banned some use in its airspace.
