PENTAGON ‘SMART BULLET’ ENTERS NEW TESTING PHASE

Washington Times on May 1, 2015, reported that the Pentagon’s research arm tasked with creating breakthrough technology has improved on its “smart bullet,” which can change trajectory mid-flight and hit accelerating targets. Excerpts below:

“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 2015 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,” DARPA said on its YouTube page.
