Bending bullets......

Postby hammAR » Tue Apr 28, 2015 7:40 pm

DARPA’s Extreme Accuracy Tasked Ordnance (EXACTO) program, which developed a self-steering bullet to increase hit rates for difficult, long-distance shots, completed in February its most successful round of live-fire tests to date. An experienced shooter using the technology demonstration system repeatedly hit moving and evading targets. Additionally, a novice shooter using the system for the first time hit a moving target.

This video shows EXACTO rounds maneuvering in flight to hit targets that are moving and accelerating. EXACTO’s specially designed ammunition and real-time optical guidance system help track and direct projectiles to their targets by compensating for weather, wind, target movement and other factors that can impede successful hits.

I don't know whether to be scared or awed.

Kind'a depends on who's doing the shooting and who's being shot at, don't it? :?

I'm still holding out for a rail gun.

No worries. Lowly law abiding citizens probably won't be able to touch them.

So... scary it is, when John Doe no-knock has the wrong address.
