Closing Thought–06Feb20

It fires only with a guaranteed kill.

Say what?

Now that is what we need more than anything….la gun that will guarantee a hit/kill……

The U.S. Army is currently evaluating a smart rifle that will only fire if its software determines that the shot is guaranteed to hit its target.

The system, a collaboration between arms developers SIG Sauer and Smart Shooter, is a submission to the Army’s call for fire control systems to accompany its futuristic Next-Generation Squad Weapon, according to Military.com — and if the Army decides to go ahead with the tech, it could be deployed in the field by 2023.

The Army is interested in a smart fire control tool is to make soldiers

more effective by cutting down on stray shots.

How soon after 2023 will it take for this weapon to make it into the public domain?

I am still on the fence…..do we need this? 

A thought……what happens in a firefight?  Suppressing fire is a must….

It is almost as disturbing to me as a DNA bullet……

The US Army has revealed testing of a revolutionary self-guided bullet is at an advanced stage.

The latest trials of the Extreme Accuracy Tasked Ordnance, known as Exacto, program have shown even first time users can hit a moving target.

The bullets have a real-time guidance system to track targets, and can change their course if needed. 

An experienced shooter using the technology demonstration system repeatedly hit moving and evading targets in the latest trials. 

Additionally, a novice shooter using the system for the first time hit a moving target.

The video shows Exacto rounds manoeuvring in flight to hit targets that are moving and accelerating.

Yet another disturbing weapon innovation…..

  1. As you suggested.. it won’t be long before the Second Amendment clowns will say they are entitled to own a weapon like this to make sure government stays in line.

      1. I’m still working out the podcasting.. and.. I’m truly fed up with the jerk-off we have pretending to be president and I’m trying to mellow a bit.
        But thanks for asking, old buddy. 🙂 I still read your posts.

  2. Imagine this one… let’s reference that MGM/Vegas snipe from a couple years ago. He aims his weapon toward the crowd and presses a set button. The image in his sight locks.. then puts a squre box around every human target in the field of vision. It locks on… then fires the weapon.. pausing to message you to change magazines. Fast, effective.. each bullet hitting its intended target. No one gets a chance to flee, hide, or take cover. No one is wounded as all shots are kill shots.

  3. The right to bear arms shall not be infringed. Or something like that.

    Pretty strong language and absolute. Machine guns, land mines, mortars, and tanks are all arms.

    I will get my order in for some of those new weapons. Never have been able to hit a moving target.

  4. I agree with you. Suppressing fire is an essential military tactic. Keeping the enemy’s “head down” is invaluable to hinder their observation and return fire as well as to conceal your own positions and movements.

    This sounds like a cost-saving scheme to me, and it sets a dangerous precedent of prioritizing death over less costly means to achieve battlefield success. During the Vietnam War, American soldiers were trained to conserve ammunition through accurate and efficient firing. This made sense, but real combat conditions often proved otherwise. Frequently, it was the weight of firepower that proved decisive and not the body count. Soldiers facing a hailstorm of bullets and other projectiles were highly motivated to retreat regardless of casualties. This dynamic is also evident in other forms of warfare such as naval battles.

  5. I thought that laser sights placing a red dot on a ‘target’ were usually a ‘sure kill’? Not that I would know, as I have never used one.
    Best wishes, Pete.
