It fires only with a guaranteed kill.
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…..
