Precision target: Darpa’s new self-steering bullet can follow moving targets

EXACTO-DARPA-798x350

By NewsGram Staff Writer

With the new Exacto (Extreme Accuracy Tasked Ordnance weapon) bullets, killing someone has never been easier. The bullets designed by Darpa, a military research agency in the US, have the capability of chasing a moving target by changing directions.

The bullet can adjust to weather and wind changes, as well as the movement of the target by steering in air. Although the technological nuances of the bullet have not been revealed for obvious reasons, it is believed that the bullet uses small fins to re-direct its path.

What is interesting to note is the non-sophistication and user-friendly nature of the bullet. Tests held in February showed that the accuracy of the shot was maintained even when it was fired by an inexperienced person.

The bullet has been designed to keep the troops out of danger by allowing them to maintain a safe distance from the target.

‘The live-fire demonstration from a standard rifle showed that the EXACTO bullet is able to hit moving and evading targets with extreme accuracy at sniper ranges, something unachievable with traditional rounds.’ said Jerome Dunn, DARPA program manager.
