The United States military has announced the development of a bullet capable of self-steering itself mid-flight to hit a moving target. According to sources, the bullet’s self-steering system is so accurate, even a novice shooter can accurately strike a target.
Time released a video from the Department of Defense’s research agency (DARPA) that shows the self-steering bullet in action. The bullet’s prototype was completed in February, and testing began shortly after. The development is part of DARPA’s Extreme Accuracy Tasked Ordinance program (EXACTO).
DARPA has uploaded videos to their YouTube channel, giving interested parties an insight as to how the bullet responds in real-life scenarios and makes necessary adjustments to hit a moving target. The videos do not give away any secrets regarding how the technology works but does provide proof of its existence.
DARPA is claiming that the tests have been quite successful thus far, and they expect the technology to get even better as testing and further development move forward.
