The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), an agency of the U.S. Department of Defense, just released new video showing a self-steering bullet that increases hit rates for “difficult, long-distance shots.”
“A novice shooter using the system for the first time hit a moving target.” So reads the recent statement posted on DARPA’s site.
Not sure that’s a comforting thought. As technology progresses, so does our government’s ability to kill, kill, kill.
The video shows live-fire demonstrations of the bullets, developed for DARPA’s Extreme Accuracy Tasked Ordinance program (aka, EXACTO).The bullet can be seen correcting its trajectory in midair, heading towards its target even though it’s not centered.DARPA program manager Jerome Dunn clarifies: “Fitting EXACTO’s guidance capabilities into a small .50-caliber size is a major breakthrough and opens the door to what could be possible in future guided projectiles across all calibers.”
What do you make of the “smart” bullet? Worthwhile technology?
Your money well-spent?
