Self-Guiding, Smart Bullets
|DARPA's EXACTO Bullet|
US Government Bulls-Eye Project with Classified Technology
The US Defense Department's Advanced Research Projects Agency DARPA is developing a smart bullet for the US Military. The project EXACTO ammunition is a matter of public record. But the guidance system, that's apparently so successful, is top secret. It's a bullet that changes and corrects its direction after being fired and in flight to accurately hit the target.
No More Misfires
This is a real-life project that could soon end misfiring problems caused by shooter errors, bad weather conditions and wind. The goal is to save the lives of US troops by arming them with smart bullets with bulls-eye guidance systems.
EXACTO uses a built-in guidance system to keep the bullet on target and be bulls-eye. The specifics on how the guidance system works are classified. This is a DARPA government project to provide the US military with technological advantages in combat and terrorist situations.
